Round Robin Paint Off May 9th 2013

On Thursday May 9th, 2013 the Whitchurch-Stouffville Studio Tour participated in a "Round Robin Paint Off" of York Region Studio Tours hosted by the York Region Arts Council.

The "Arts after Hours" event was a way for artists to meet and network with their peers. Creating art can be isolating so these events are excellent ways to "talk shop" with fellow artists. 

The entertainment of this evening was the round robin painting tournament.

For the "paint off" each team of 3 artists had 30 minutes to complete a collaborative painting. Four tours were represented, King Studio Tour, Newmarket Studio Tour, Richmond Hill Studio Tour and Whitchurch-Stouffville Studio Tour. 

Our team consisted of artists Ray McNeice, Colin Whitebread and Diana Bullock

They chose to depict a kettle lake at the bottom of the painting surrounded by houses and with hills and farmland in the background. Collaged into the houses was an area map of the farms from the late 19th century. 

As well as painting, our team took a video of their work. Looks like they had fun!
