Live art for special events brings entertainment to a whole new level of immersiveness and interactivity. After all, we appreciate and value many things in life by the interesting story behind them. By painting live at events, attendants become part of the art work, and take pride in seeing the process of a piece from begining to end. Seeing the buildup of a blank canvas to a fully completed piece before your eyes is truly a memorable experience.
