Art Battle 120 – Ottawa

Join us at Arts Court on Monday May 5th for an inspiring night of live competitive painting! 

12 professional and emerging painters will compete to become the next Art Battle champion, the winner earning a cash prize and a spot in the Ottawa Championship in June 2014. The winner of the Ottawa Final will compete in the 2014 National Championship. The painters and audiences have been absolutely amazing in Canada’s Capital and we can’t wait to be back at the easels on Monday May 5th.

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. This is Art Battle Canada’s 5th season and first full season in Ottawa.
