(Art Gallery of Greater Victoria)

It’s back, and it’s happening THIS weekend!

After a two year hiatus, the TD Art Gallery Paint-In will return, and it promises to be bigger and better than ever!

Join Victoria’s favourite art festival for their 33rd edition happening this Saturday, July 16th from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., where artists will line up along Moss Street to demonstrate their craft and share their work with the community.

Celebrate up to 150 local artists and enjoy community, arts-based groups transforming Moss Street into a colourful art gallery.

Under the sun, you’ll be able to explore your love of art with friends and neighbours, connect with local artists as they demonstrate their craft, and stop at the Imagination Stations for art-inspired activities.

You’ll even have the chance to taste local eats and drinks at the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria grounds at 1040 Moss Street.

There’s also local music and performances PLUS a family-friendly beer garden, open until 6 p.m.
