About Paint with Pride!

Paint with Pride! is a StreetARToronto (StART) project that seeks to engage with self-identified 2SLGBTQ+ artists living and working in Toronto interested in doing a live painting on a 3′ X 4′ stretched canvas during the weekend of Pride 2024. Artists will be compensated. 50% of the proceeds from the sale of the artwork will be donated to The 519, and 50% will be held by the artist.

Join the fun as the StART Pride booth! Nine talented artists will be painting live throughout Pride weekend. See their meaningful works come to life before your eyes and engage in art-making activities for the whole family. Let’s celebrate with lots of colourful fun!
