What is Art Battle? Link to video from My City Lives
Art Battle is live competitive painting. Painters create the best work they can in 20 minutes. As they work, patrons move around the easels, closely watching the creative process. The medium is acrylic paint and the tools allowed are brushes, palette knives or any non-mechanical implements. At the end of the round, the audience votes democratically for their favourite painting and bids in silent auction to take the work home.

Please join us on the 19th, we’ll have the balcony open, great music and the best live painting you’ve ever seen. Voting, Auction, $5 beers, awesome music, you get the idea!

3,2,1…let’s paint.

Tickets at the door $20 / $10 students (w/ID)

see you then!
