PROJECT COMPLETED – THE 6048 SQUARES HAVE BEEN FILLED IN
CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
A special thanks to PCAC Director Shelley Sweeney, who devised and coordinated the project and to all the volunteers who have put in so much effort as well as to the participants themselves who have ensured the goal of 6048 squares was reached!
Happy 150th Birthday Canada!
In celebration of our country’s Birthday the Peachland Community Arts Council has unofficially broken a Guinness World Record (the largest number of participants painting a ‘paint by number’ at one venue).
Visitors to the Peachland Art Gallery have painted a ONE – 1” SQUARE on our 6 x 7 foot canvas, and signed our participants log book acknowledging their work and recording their square number.
HOW IT WAS DONE ON TELEVISION – SEE IT ON YouTube!
Our goal was to have all 6,048 squares painted and documented by December 23, 2017.
All of the painting was done in the Peachland Art Gallery beginning March 24th, 2017
This has been a part of history!
All 6048 squares have been filled in. We now await official ratification of our entry for a Guinness World Record!
