Creative Combat is back on November 19, 2022!

12 artists have 20 minutes to create a work of art that will win them a spot in the final round.

This year's artist roster is fresh and full of talent! You will not want to miss this action packed, friendly art competition. Watch 12 artists create a work of art in just 20 minutes right in front of your eyes.

Who will create your favourite piece and secure your vote to move on to the next round?

Our emcees bring you close to this artistic showdown, whether you're participating from home or as part of a live audience. Tickets for the event go on sale on August 24. We anticipate a sold out event so get your tickets early!

Creative Combat would not be complete without our yearly raffle and silent auction.

Important dates to keep in mind:

Raffle tickets to go on sale October 10 and the silent auction bidding starts on Tuesday, November 8 at 9 a.m. Stay tuned for more info.
