Grab Inspiration!

The approximate size of art is 18” x 60” on two or four sides of a primed, concrete pillar in a parkade. The pillars are rectangular in shape and have a definite front and back; sides are not as important. Artist quality, acrylic paints must be used. Participating artists get a 30% discount on any art materials at The Paint Spot.

Theme is art from the Louvre or of Parisian influence. Consider replicating paintings, and drawings. Paint a version of your favorite sculpture, architecture, street scene, or garden.
