Artists fundraise for Sooke Crisis Center

Public encouraged to paint on canvas for local charity

Local artists are asking the community to come out to paint and bid on art to benefit the Sooke Crisis Center on May 27.

As part of the Sooke Community Arts Council ARTifFACTS show, artists will coach the public to paint.

Starting at noon in the pavilion tent on the Sooke Region Museum grounds, the painting is open to all with an interest in painting and art lovers wishing to buy a work of art.

Artists Linda Gordon, Deb Koff, Linda Anderson and other SCAC members will paint and teach those attending how to speed paint similar to the “art battle” style.

Participants will have 20 minutes to splash paint on canvas: a flowing assortment of colors and swirling shapes.

If you think you can’t paint, don’t fret. SCAC has an artist that will guide you to make a modern abstract that will attract. Colour and tone are what it’s all about.

The paintings will be auctioned off, with profits given to the crisis center.

The Crisis Center offers emergency food, shelter and other support services to local people in need.

The Sooke Community Arts Council ARTifFACTS show runs until May 28 in the upper gallery at Sooke Region Museum.
