Create a work of temporary public art! Saturdays this fall, add your creative mark to a giant paint-by-numbers mural in John Lawson Park near the Sea Walk. Created in collaboration with muralists Paintillio, the mural will inspire passers by to have a cultural conversation on climate change. The mural's subject matter references the effects of climate change on our local shorelines, waters & aquatic wildlife. The design was conceived during workshops with local youth as they engaged with topics surrounding climate change, creating a collage from recycled materials. This collage was then photographed & transformed into a giant paint-by-numbers image. Now it's up to you to add colour! All paint & materials are recycled & reclaimed. Health & safety protocols are in place including social distancing, cleaning paint brushes between uses, hand sanitizer will be available. We ask that all participants wear masks if they are able. Participants may be asked to wait before painting to ensure social distancing can be maintained.
