The Brush Off | 10th Edition 

Now in its 10th year, THEMUSEUM is proud to host Waterloo Region’s original and premiere live art-making event, The Brush Off again on Saturday, April 24, 2021, from 7:30pm-9:30pm. During this fundraising event, artists are invited to participate in a friendly competition, painting and creating art live in front of a digital audience! Artists will expose and be exposed to the wealth of artistic talent that exists in this community and beyond!

Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions, we are moving one of KW’s favourite art competitions into a virtual event you can enjoy from the comfort of your own home. Guests will enjoy the intensity of the creative process, vote for their favourite works, bid on the paintings created in an online auction, all while they dance to the music from our incredible DJ.

Join us for our Paint Party!

Thursday, April 22, 2021 at 7pm 

New this year! Join us on Thursday, April 22, at 7pm with artist and resident maker, Riley Shortt as you are guided step-by-step on how to paint a night sky and whimsical trees. The painting is really simple for beginners and all supplies are included (a small list of household supplies may be required). Buy your tickets in the add-ons section of the checkout below!

THEMUSEUM is a registered not for profit, charitable organization and puts on events like this one to fundraise to stay open and offer fresh and relevant exhibitions and programming to this community. Each artist is donating their time to create the art and THEMUSEUM and artists share in the silent auction proceeds. Along with the artists, guests support THEMUSEUM at the event through ticket sales and art sales.
