Base Camp Studio’s second annual Painting Marathon is a 26.2 hour non-stop arts event that attracts all strokes of folks and is slated for September 5 in coordination with the First Friday downtown Art Walk.
On five different canvases 27 local painters and over 120 children take turns creating a collaboration of color. The theme for this year’s festivities is Connection and will be the thread tying all of the artists, spectators and paintings together. Live music, food-cart fare, bubbly and barreled beverages, sidewalk chalk and a make-believe camp site are also part of the event fun inviting the community to come spend some time cultivating creativity and building community.

The mission of Base Camp Studio is to provide a sustainable and supportive space that builds a healthy community by cultivating artistic creativity, self-awareness, personal growth, and interpersonal understanding.
The Painting Marathon event speaks directly to this mission by bringing the community together for a night of artistic expression and sharing. The event will generate awareness of Base Camp Studio and its mission to the community of Bend. The paintings are available for “purchase” to anyone and all donations go directly toward arts programming and facilitation.
