The Old School House Arts Centre (TOSH) is gearing up for the annual Grand Prix d'Art painting race and Art in Action Art Fair on Saturday, July 28.

Art in Action is an annual event held outside the arts centre that attracts a large number of community residents as well as visitors to our area who come to view and purchase distinctive artwork and enjoy a free concert. https://www.facebook.com/grandprixpaintingrace/

Art in Action provides a creative environment in which artists and craft workers can demonstrate their skills and engage with the public. The fair hosts over 50 artists in diverse disciplines such as painting, sculpture, printmaking, calligraphy, illustration, textiles, woodwork, metalwork, jewellery, ceramics and glass.

From 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. visitors can tour this interactive arts festival in a large outside venue around the arts centre, and on this special day the Qualicum Beach Farmers' Market will move their location here to join in the fun! As well, the entire arts centre, which is home to 30 Resident Artists, three galleries and a gift shop representing 125 Vancouver Island artists, will be open for leisurely browsing.

The festivities will be highlighted by live music on our outdoor stage as well as our annual en plein air painting race that takes place throughout our picturesque town. The main concert (free admission) will be presented from 12:30 p.m.-3:30 p.m. and will feature the Maureen Washington quartet.
