Join Art Battle Toronto for an amazing experience of live performance!
Grab your best pals and join us for a wonderful afternoon of creativity and community, a live painting tournament showcasing local artists and connecting Toronto to towns and cities around the world. Come watch as artists transform blank canvases into beautiful pieces of art in 3 rounds of just 20 minutes, and then help vote to determine the winner of the event! All artwork will also be available for silent auction. Be a part of the fun as a spectator, or participate as one of the featured artists by applying online at artbattle.com/artists!



Artists can apply to compete. Also, most events have a ‘Wildcard’ easel, where artists leave their names at the door and we draw at random to pick the Wildcard Artist. To be a potential wildcard artist, just buy a ticket and show up!
