ARTSWELL is pumped to be bringing ART JAM to the Street Eats Fundraiser April 21st. Come out for an awesome night of music and art while supporting a good cause.
Street Eats is a Non Profit group that helps bring nourishing meals and clothing to the people of the Downtown Eastside. By signing up to participate in ART JAM, not only are you supporting the expansion of art into the community, part of the proceeds of your ticket will help people of the DTES.
ART JAM is a fun, social collaborative art making party for everyone! No previous art experience required. Create a team of 2-4 friends and get your art on with the support of featured local artist(s) to guide you through the creative process. DJ Sam Chimes will welcome you in and keep things grooving thoughout the night. You will meet our Featured Artist(s) who's work will be exhibited in the space and learn about their process. We will show you how to achieve some cool painting effects with the materials provided. Then, with your input a theme will be selected and it will be time to get your art jam on! You will have roughly an an hour and 20 minutes to create with your team and there will be fun creative challenges added along the way. So come and let your inner artist run wild!
*If you are signing up as a solo, no worries! We will help place you in a team.
There will be a cash bar in the ART JAM space so no need to run back and forth between rooms.
Here's the low down of the nights events:
6:00pm-7:00pm: Doors open. Live art + Silent Auction. Check in for ART JAM upon arrival.
7:00pm-8:00pm: Music! Two Local Bands/Musicians. Head over to ART JAM space for 8:00 pm start time.
8:00pm-10:00pm: ART JAM! To maximize our two hours together please be in the ART JAM space promptly for 8:00pm.
10:00pm-11:00pm: More Music! Head back to the Street Eats party for the last hour of tunes by local bands/musicians.
Disclaimer: This is a collaborative art making process so not every participant can walk away with the art at end of the night. However, if you are keen on taking home what your team created, the pieces will be available to purchase for $25.00 at the end of the night (with part of the extra proceeds going to Street Eats). If more than one member of the team wishes to keep the art, we will draw names. There will also be art for sale by our Local Artist(s).
