Our Artfest 80 foot Mural Project (led by Arthur II) and the Artfest Kids mural project (led by Kira Kerr) was once again, a huge success! Thanks guys for amazing the crowds!
We couldn't thank the artists more for contributing to this one of a kind project that brings people together to collaborate their creative ideas with an end result that is both inspiring and magical!
This program also known as ParticiPAINT had over a thousand participants in 2014 at Artfest Kingston and, this year we doubled that! Way to go guys!
Last year at Artfest Kingston, Arthur created a magnificent 80 ft. mural depicting the ‘City in the Park’ theme with 3-D buildings of Kingston.
At Artfest Kingston 2015 , we started afresh with a new theme: Friends Across the Water. Arthur II is inspired by what transforms over the first three days on the festival. On day four he works his magic! Using what everyone else has added, he draws out large imagery and transforms the 80ft wall into a massive art mural. The results were magical!
Come by and PARTICIPAINT@Artfest in 2016!
Kids will have their very own mural to create again next year led by mural artist Kira Kerr. A little bit shorter and a little bit smaller: 4 ft. high and 32 ft long. No experience is necessary! This is your chance to grab a paintbrush and apply your marks with an unlimited selection of gorgeous colours provided by Kingston’s Tri-Art manufacturer of artists paint!. All-ages welcome.
