The Place des Arts Youth Arts Council invites everyone to celebrate Youth Arts Week with its first Street Art Project. Drop by and “paint your talent”. Whether you sing, dance, draw, play sports or even make funny faces, you can make your mark on a brick in the Carré Heritage Square Amphitheatre. Every unique painted brick will be incorporated into a larger, collaborative street-art mural. Paint brushes and nontoxic paint will be provided for guests to create an original art piece for the project. Music and fun entertainment accompany this free, all-ages event, and refreshments and snacks will be provided by Place des Arts and Tim Horton’s. Come rain or shine!

Tickets: Free
