kickstART: An action-packed evening of art, prizes, and fun.

Live Paint Battle, Digital Destinations (green screen fun presented by Whitchurch-Stouffville Public Library), a massive community art project, henna tattooing, snacks, and more.

LIVE PAINT BATTLE – A live painting competition for youth at The Latcham Gallery as part of National Youth Week celebrations! Paint your mark onto canvas. This free, live painting event invites individual artists and/or small collaborative artist teams (max. 3 participants per team) ages 10 – 18 to compete in a timed “paint off”. Winners of each round go on to compete in the final “paint off”. Winners are selected by the audience, and in the case of a tie, decided by an external juror. Everyone is invited to attend and cheer for their favourite artist and teams.

For more information and to register as a participant, complete and submit the form below in person at The Latcham Gallery or by email to info@latchamgallery.ca

Registered participants meet at The Latcham Gallery at 6pm for guidelines and a free pizza dinner before the event.
kickstART is held concurrently with the opening of The Latcham Gallery’s annual Celebrations exhibition featuring artwork by kindergarten to Grade 8 students from Whitchurch-Stouffville’s elementary schools. The exhibition will be complemented by IMAGES 2.0, a display of artwork by Grade 9-11 students from Stouffville District Secondary School.
