Live Paint the Moment (call is open to artists of color and LGBTQ+ artists only)
As individuals and an organization, we know we can always do more to amplify the creative voices of the marginalized members of our community. To that end, Side Street Studio Arts brings back its live paint series in an effort to specifically highlight the voices of artists of color and the LGBTQ+ community. Each Friday, during the Downtown Elgin Farmers Market, from 5 to 7pm, June 19 through August 21*, a minimum of two artists will be provided with the materials needed to create original works of art inspired by the moment. Works will be up for auction during the live paint, and 100% of the sales will go back to the artists. Slots are available on a first come, first served basis. All ages and skill levels are welcome. This call is open to artists of color and LGBTQ+ artists only.
• Most live paints will be outside.
• If work does not sell that day, it will be up for sale in our MADE shop and the artist will be contacted when it sells.
• Canvas, paint, easel, palette, and brushes (if needed) will be provided.
• After you apply, you will receive a confirmation email with additional information.
