This week's live painting

Thanks to all who stopped by last week's live painting at Dolphin Square and Streetfest!

We had a great turnout and lots of people wanting to know more. If you didn't get a chance to stop by, there are photos up from all three days on our Flickr photostream.

This week we have two days of live painting at Dolphin Square (weather permitting).

You can find us there on Friday, 17 September, for an afternoon session, and on Saturday, 18 September, for a full day session.

If you're an artist interested in getting involved, or if you want to know more about signing up for the workshop sessions that will start next month, email Jen at westonlivepaint@gmail.com.

Weekly Live Painting

It's official... Starting tomorrow there will be weekly live painting in Weston!

To get it started, we have three days of painting going on.

First off, Adam Mclevey will be taking to Dolphin Square tomorrow (Friday, 10/09/10). He'll be there from about 11 am to 5:30 pm.

Then, all weekend -- Saturday and Sunday -- there's going to be live painting at Streetfest on the Beach Lawns.

It will be a good weekend (hopefully the weather will hold out, but if not, there should be plenty of covered areas) and lots of wall space for the guys to fill.

Keep checking back here for announcements of times and dates of the weekly painting, which will get bigger in the next few months...

Paint Jam 2010??

We've been asked a few time about the chances of having another paint jam in Weston this summer.

Here's what needs to happen for it to happen...

We need some sponsorship! If we can get businesses or individuals to sponsor boards, we can get it off the ground. It can't happen if costs aren't covered up front -- we're just starving arty types ourselves.

If you know people/businesses who might be interested in sponsoring a board or two (with their names on the boards/some promo material), give a shout in the comments.

Also, if you know any Weston businesses or homeowners who want a wall painted during a paint jam, let us know about that, too!

Beyond that, keep checking back for announcements.
