(I'm attending this recurring event again, as I enjoy it, but forgot about posting it as a meetup until now.)
WHAT IS ART BATTLE?
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.
Doors open: 7:00 pm
Painting starts: 8:00 pm
Tickets: Please buy your own tickets ($10 limited advance, $15 regular online or at door) at the website link below or at the door. (Buying online guarantees your ticket, while buying at the door has a risk of the event selling out before you arrive. I am not doing a group buy at this time, and there is no group discount, in any case.)
Note: the RSVP/No-Show policy is in effect. Please keep your RSVP up-to-date, and if attending, find the group (via the "Meetup" sign on the table) and at least check in.

The plan: I'll be there at 7:00 pm (or just after) and get a table or booth on the main floor (street level, painting level), past the bar and easels, left side before the stairs, in an alcove, in a corner. There will be a "Meetup" sign on the table. This will be "Base Camp". Note: this event is popular and gets very crowded, so it's best to come early. When the painting begins (8:00 pm), it's highly desirable to walk around and watch the paintings progress.
By the way, Vancouver Fan Club has "Happy Hour" $3.99 appetizers before 6:00 pm.

WHAT IS ART BATTLE?
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. This is Art Battle Canada’s 5th season and the 3rd season in Vancouver
