Great Pumpkin Paint Off turns squash into canvases

Building Learning Together hosts all-ages, Halloween-themed art event at MAC beginning at 4 p.m. Oct. 21

Bring your inner artist and a pumpkin to the McMillan Arts Centre Wednesday afternoon and paint to your heart’s content using the pumpkin as your canvas.

Wednesday’s Great Pumpkin Paint Off takes place from 4-6 p.m. at the MAC, and everyone is invited to take part.

Whether you just want to have fun or you are a serious pro, you can bring family, friends, co-workers and leave the mess.

Your pumpkin will enjoy the limelight and be on display in various locations until Spooktacular at Storybook Village in Qualicum Beach on Oct. 27, from 5:30-7 p.m. Spooktacular is Building Learning Together’s annual fall event. Join in on a spooky walk around the village where visitors will be asked to choose their favourite pumpkin in each of our three categories — just for fun, gone pro and group effort.

Building Learning Together will provide the paint, paint brushes, beverages and snacks for tomorrow’s Great Pumpkin Paint Off.  All ages welcome, by donation.

For more information or to register by phone, call 250-947-8252. You may also register online at www.oblt.ca/pumpkin, or at the door. Space is limited.

Spooktacular takes place at Storybook Village, behind Qualicum Commons at 744 Primrose St. in Qualicum Beach.
