Friday: The Socialite

Hello! It’s Friday and we are at the end of our busy week. It was a short one here in Ontario, due to the Family day long weekend last weekend, but we all made it nonetheless. The good news is that it’s warming up this weekend in Toronto, so this means we could plan to be outside enjoying the mild weather. Let’s grab our pens and agendas and get down to business.

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. At the end of the round, the audience votes democratically for their favourite painting and bids in silent auction to take the work home. Check artbattle.com for local listings!
