WHO IS PAINTING?
Everyone: Artists, families, businesses, clubs, friends, and the community at large. Certain community charities of SAA, PNC, and others sponsors' choosing will receive a free square. All non-professional, non-sponsored, regular squares will be entered in the Viewers Choice contest.
Professional Category: You may purchase a square for $10 extra to be entered in the Professional Art Category. You will have eight hours to complete your painting. This category will have access to an endless amount of paint. Cash prizes will be awarded to the top three winners.
WHAT ARE YOU PAINTING?
It is completely up to you! - a portrait, business logo, a Jackson Pollock!
For Paint the Driveway participants, we encourage you to stick to a 6 ft x 6 ft square, to keep the same feel as Paint the Street. The amount of paint you'll be given will only cover that approximate size.
We do retain the right to censor, at our discretion, content that is not appropriate for the general public.
WHERE ARE YOU PAINTING?
Paint the Street: The event will block off Washington from 4th to 8th Streets. No painting will happen on the cobblestone between 5th and 6th Streets. A square number will be assigned to you and emailed the day before the event.
Paint the Driveway: If you purchase this registration, the event will happen in your driveway! This is tempera paint and will wash away over time. We advice that you mix 1/4 cup of laundry detergent with each color of paint for ease of removal. If you don't have a driveway, any pavement will do!
Paint the Driveway
for those that would like a take home option instead of painting on Washington Street.
Each registration will come with one paint supply bucket, one sponsor swag bag and one Paint the Street t-shirt.
$30 for SAA Members
$35 for Non-Members
Paint Supplies will be available for pick up at Springfield Art Association [700 N. 4th Street] during open office hours, through June 17th-23rd, 9 AM-5 PM M-F and 10 AM-3 PM Saturdays. Paint at home on your driveway, sidewalk, or patio on a nice day. Or, come by the SAA to paint our parking lot! Just give us a call the day before to let us know when you'll be coming. Paint the Driveway sales will end at midnight of June 22.
