Vancouver Island’s largest outdoor visual art event, the TD Art Gallery Paint-In is celebrating its 25th Anniversary! So mark your calendar and plan to join us on Saturday July 21, 2012.

The Paint-In is a community outreach initiative featuring 150 invited professional and emerging artists from Victoria and surrounding areas. Artists take their studios to the street to display and produce their work on Moss Street between Fort Street and Dallas Road. The Paint-In is a free and fun-filled community-based art awareness and education event that sees up to 35,000 visitors. Once again TD is demonstrating its commitment to supporting the visual arts as the Paint-In's Title sponsor, back by further support from the City of Victoria.

Visitors to the event have the opportunity to meet with an enormous variety of artists and learn about their work and techniques. Ultimately, the event allows local artists access to a receptive audience while encouraging an appreciation of the arts among the visitors. Over 200 volunteers plus the participating artists dedicate more than 3,800 hours to make this exceptional community event possible.
