What is Live Painting?
Live painting is an improvisational performance in which a visual artist creates a painting or paintings in front of a live audience during the duration of an event. Jana creates the artwork from start to finish as a way to uniquely entertain guests, add a unique addition to the event aesthetic, and attract passers-by. Jana creates art during the event to fit any theme, from vivid abstract paintings, captivating landscapes, or special designs collaborated with the host.
