Face Painting

@ 10 Carden:

This event will be happening during the afternoon from 12-3.

Margaret Phillips will be painting faces on a “pay what you think it’s worth” basis. Margaret placed among the top face painters internationally & is a visiting artist from Quebec, for beloved Guelph face painting group: Makin’ Faces Face Painting. Margaret is delighted to offer her creative designs on Fourth Friday this month.

Arthur Kerrey of Infinite Arts/Inka Arts is a skilled urban artist who releases his inner expressions through several mediums: silver, body art & “graffiti” arts. This Fourth Friday, Arthur will be showing the creativity of spray can art on a small scale – canvas & clothing. Come watch.

 @ Ballroom Class (26 Eramosa Rd)

Join us for the musical stylings of The Boo Radley Project, a alt rock/funk group based in Guelph and Elora who may or may not feature glockenspiels as the centre of their songs. Fusing African sounds with North American hip hop, they throw in a little polka accordion and a musical sensation is born.
