Welcome to Paint4Good!

Paint4Good is a painting initiative created by The Urban Painter to support Calgary’s charitable community and keep Calgary colourful – one paint stroke at a time!

Each year one or more Calgary charities or community support organizations in need of a fresh coat of paint are chosen to receive a free painting project. The Urban Painter volunteers their time and all the painting supplies to create brighter and more colourful spaces for these organizations and their occupants!
