What is Live Painting?

Live painting is an improvisational performance in which a visual artist creates a painting in front of a live audience during the duration of an event.  A live painting performance artist creates the artwork from start to finish as a method of entertainment. Unlike purchasing a piece created in the artist's studio, a live painting session includes the whole performance from start to finish. It is a way to engage your guests and create fantastic memories.
