Body Painting Fourth Friday's Guelph Body Painting

@ Old Quebec St Mall (located at 55 Wyndham St):

Makin’ Faces Face Painting are a crew of award winning face and body painting artists. Tania, Margaret, Arthur, Kaitlyn, Cathy, Liane, Lena, Emily, and Karlee will be set up in the mall to do face painting and henna. What led them to paint people’s faces? Here’s what their Facebook page says:

Makin’ Faces Face Painting was born 25 years ago with a group of people who never turned down an excuse to put on a costume & paint their faces. Tania, an artistic, eccentric soul, kept painting people any chance she could despite her ‘real’ job. Eventually, demand exceeded time available & with encouragement from many quarters, Tania officially went full-time. With several hand-selected face & body painters as part of her crew, Tania is able to offer a high caliber artist clients can count on. While we can provide ‘point boards’ if requested, it is not necessary as all my artists are picked for their ability to paint from memory & artistic skill.

And the Old Quebec Street Mall?

“Old Quebec Street is a treasure of downtown. A landmark in its own right, a sight to behold.”

–C. Mayled


Located in the scenic heart of downtown Guelph, Old Quebec Street occupies a unique role in the history of the city—a role which continues to evolve with time. Part shopping centre, part office space, Old Quebec Street provides a charming and memorable experience to visitors; an experience that is intimately tied to its history.

Our vision for the future of Old Quebec Street & Downtown Guelph is equally unique.
