The Arts Station
601 1st Ave

The Arts Station is hosting an all-ages Paint Battle on June 21 to raise money for the Out of the Box Dumpster Project. The Paint Battle will incorporate artists of all ages, beginning with a kids’ round at 6:15, followed by a teen round at 7pm, and finishing with an adult round from 8pm. The winner of each round is determined by audience votes, and each winner will receive a cash prize. The paintings will be auctioned off in a silent auction at the end of each round, and these proceeds will also be donated to the Out of the Box Dumpster Project. DJ Jay Ray will be providing artists with a soundtrack that they can draw inspiration from while working. So come grab a drink, enjoy some tunes, and vote for your favourite painting!
