Twelve local painters are going to battle this Friday night, as the annual Art Battle takes place.
Artist Christina Watts is preparing her weapons.
She’s going to battle on Friday night at the Hubspace, taking on eleven other artists.
Art Battle is a chance for the public to connect and interact with art. Three rounds of four paintings take place with spectactors voting on their favorite along with a wildcard for the final round.
The art created is then auctioned off to the public, with half of the proceeds going to the Community Arts Council and the other half to the artists themselves. The winner of this years’ event will go on to battle on the provincial level in Vancouver.
