What is Art Battle?

Art Battle is live competitive painting event. 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.


If you are interested in participating in the event as one of the competitors please apply 


Please note that the theatre foyer has a capacity of 150 people. Art Battle held downtown Nanaimo last year sold out fast.


This event will have a live DJ, host bar, and snacks.  Art Battle Nanaimo is a 19+ event.
