Come and 'Paint your Town' and see your work exhibited at The Cloisters, Kingston Museum
Updated: Aug 16, 2022
Calling all artists --- Whether you're a professional or just starting out -- it doesn’t matter how good you are -- if you're 16+ we've an exciting opportunity for you to paint Kingston and then have your work exhibited as part of a temporary exhibition at The Cloisters (next to Kingston Museum).
It's all part of 'Paint Your Town' - an opportunity to get creative and capture Kingston on canvas.
You could paint your favourite view across the Thames, a building, a person, or something inspired by a feeling – it’s ‘Your Kingston’ we want to see!
How 'Paint your Town' works
Each day, from Tuesday 23 to Thursday 25 August, we have 20 canvas boards (12 x 16inch – 30.5cm x 40.5cm) and 20 easels available for you to borrow to create your masterpiece.
These will be available from The Cloisters (next to Kingston Museum) at 10.30am. It's then up to you to head out, explore the area and paint your town!
Along with the easels, have a limited range of paints (black, white, red, blue and yellow), a palette and brushes - you can also bring with you and use any of your own art materials.
Canvases, easels and paints must be returned back to The Cloisters by 3pm each day.
To take part, there's a £20 returnable deposit.
What will happen to your art?
Your painting will become part of a temporary exhibition at The Cloisters (next to Kingston Museum) from Friday 26 to Wed 31st August, which will be open to the public. At the end of the exhibition your painting will be yours to take away!
