what is interactive event art?

“Interactive Event Art” is an art piece that is created during the event that involves attendees and event goers the opportunity to participate in either painting or drawing part of the art piece during the event and in most cases are also able to sign the art as well. The subject will be of your choosing, different mediums will be available to choose from as well as various sizes.

The art piece is either commissioned by the event and belongs to the event coordinator or host for their own personal collection, or the art piece can be put up for auction and given away at the end of the event. Either way it is fun interactive art that involves anyone who attends your event!

Great for community events, city events, or private events and parties. FUN FOR ALL!

Request a quote today, and have fun at your next event with art!

Image of Interactive Artwork is a depiction of Martin Luther King Jr. from a 2018 MLK City Event. Over 120 people painted on and touched the art piece, directed and orchestrated by myself and painted during the 2 hour event.
