FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
The Porcupine Art Club invites you to a Royal Tea Paint Party in celebration of the
Platinum Jubilee of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II!
The #PlatinumJubilee Canadian celebrations have officially started, and the Porcupine
Art Club is planning its own event here in Timmins. It has been made possible by
funding received from Canadian Heritage, to honor the occasion.
The Roy Nicholson Clubhouse, on the corner of Pine and Eighth, will be open between
12pm and 4pm on July 1, 2022. Members of the public are invited to drop-in during the
afternoon to enjoy art demonstrations and an exhibition of recent work.
Paint and brushes will be provided to visitors who wish to contribute to the Community
Mosaic Mural. In commemoration of the Platinum Jubilee of Her Majesty Queen
Elizabeth II, seventy canvases (each measuring 6×6 inches) have been prepared with
outlines and colour reference. Once complete, they will be assembled to form a mural
measuring 5 x 3.5 feet. The artwork will be included in the PAC’s upcoming exhibition
(Honouring the Past) which is scheduled to take place at the Timmins Museum: NEC
later in the year.
Planning also includes local musicians and members of the Take Two Theatre group,
who will provide additional entertainment during the afternoon.
Coffee, tea, and cookies will be served, and all participation is FREE!
