WHAT IS ART BATTLE?
Started in Toronto and now a growing event phenomenon around the globe, Art Battle® is live competitive painting. Painters create the best work they can in 20 minutes. As they work, guests can 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. Check out the calendar of Art Battle Regional Finals taking place from across Canada June 9 to July 7 at artbattle.com/calendar. Artists can apply for next season (beginning August 2017) at artbattle.com/register.
