Project Five is a pop-up art exhibition where artists transform blank canvases into masterpieces, in front of a public audience. Launched in 2009, Project Five helps to involve the local community in the art scene, while also giving budding artists the opportunity to showcase their work.

Not being an art lover, I was surprised by how enjoyable the event was. Held outdoors, the public can watch while the artists labour at their creations. As a person who can barely draw stick figures, I quite liked seeing how a few brushstrokes, and shades of colour can bring a painted story to life.

Running until the 19th October, Project Five is a unique initiative in that it allows people to see the process, not just the finished product. There are also daily kids workshops, as well as a charity art auction on the 26th October, where interested parties can bid for their favourite pieces created throughout the project.

All the Project Five events are in Darling Harbour, and are a great family-friendly activity that can be enjoyed by adults and kids alike. Except the art auction, all the events are free, and would be enjoyed by anyone with a creative streak in them.
