Let the colours fly! ArtXPress live art-making


Let the colours fly at ArtXPress, a live art-making event for artists aged 14 to 19.


On Friday June 10, 2016, young artists are invited to show off their creativity as they create a piece of artwork in just 20 minutes. There will be three lightening rounds, and spectators can vote for their favourite in each category: painting, drawing or spray painting.


Young artists can let loose their artistic flair on canvas, paper, or board in a friendly competition for artists of all levels and backgrounds. We’ll bring the paint and they’ll bring originality and creativity! There are a limited number of participants in each category so register now!


There will also be live music and the audience can take home a piece of the excitement by purchasing one of the newly created artworks in the silent auction.


The event is free for artists and audience members, but please reserve your spot in advance to unleash your creativity or to witness the artists live and up close.


ArtXPress will be held in Millennium Park at the Grain Terminals. Doors will open at 6:00 p.m. and the live lightening rounds begin at 6:30 p.m.
