In celebration of the 2018 exhibition season, Art on the Atlanta BeltLine will host a Family Paint Day on Saturday, August 4, from 12-4 p.m. as part of BeltLine Walls. Families are invited to bring their kids to paint alongside some of Atlanta’s most exciting muralists. The inaugural BeltLine Walls showcases the mural component of the 2018-2019 component of Art on the Atlanta BeltLine. Between July 29 and August 12, muralists accepted into the program are painting their murals beneath the Lee Street / Murphy Avenue tunnel on the Atlanta BeltLine’s Westside.
Local nonprofit Paint Love is facilitating the afternoon with lead artist Lindsay Ryden. Blick Art Materials in Midtown is generously donating paint. A DJ will provide music throughout the afternoon.
