Art attacks the nation’s capital

Take live painting, a time limit, an intimate setting and some friendly competition — mix them all together and the result would be Art Battle.

In short, Art Battle is live competitive painting. Painters create the best work they can across three rounds of public painting. The audience vote for the winners of each round, and the single winner of each event.

A National Championship is held at the end of each season, with competitors representing cities across Canada.

Check out the action at the last event, held at Arts Court in Ottawa in December.
