Art Battle is excited to be returning to Nanaimo! Join us at Evolve Nightclub for an inspiring night of creativity and community. Come watch as painters battle the clock and each other transforming blank canvases into beautiful pieces of original artwork in just 20 minutes and help vote to determine the Champion of the night!

The winning painter earns a cash prize and a spot at the Art Battle Regional Finals in Victoria in June! 

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. Art Battle happens in 50 cities worldwide, check for local listings!
