ParticiPAINT, Presented by Arthur II at Artfest Kingston!
Leading the Artfest Mural Project again is Ottawa's celebrated mural artist, Arthur II. Arthur is back at Artfest Kingston for his third year and will continue to lead his ParticiPAINT project based on this year's theme, Friends Across the Water.
Arthur greeted over 1000 visitors last year who painted side by side with him to create a vibrant 80 foot long mural depicting the City of Kingston (in the park theme) complete with 3D buildings of Kingston!
We have no idea what the end result will be and neither does Arthur; this is what makes this project so interesting. It is based on the layers of rich colour and texture that YOU add to the mural! On day four of Artfest Kingston, Arthur works his magic using what everyone else has added and 'vavoom' - there you have it, a creation unlike any other!
