ArtXPress 2017

In June 2017, artists let colours fly in three - 20 minutes rounds of live art-making at the Collingwood Grain Terminals! Students aged 14-19 displayed their originality and creativity on canvas, paper and board in categories called Paint it!, Draw it! and Spray it! Two winners in each round, determined by Audience Vote and Juror's Choice, took home $200 each. There were also supplies for the audience to try their hand at being creative and live  painting and spray painting demonstrations. Music was provided by Jude and Carter Lynes and grades 10 & 11 students in Mr. Clayton's Music & Computers classes at Collingwood Collegiate Institute.
