The Royal Art Throwdown – Round 1

October 21, 2022 @ 7:30 pm - 11:30 pm


Welcome back to ‘The Royal Art Throwdown’ for our second season.

After the fantastic success that we had last year with so many incredible artists on the stage and packed houses every night it was an easy decision to bring the Throwdown back for another winter.

Round 1 will be kicking off with a whole lot of Artists, new donations and sponsors and the same old host.

If you didn’t catch a Throwdown last year this is how it plays out:

Two heats of three artists will take to the stage throughout the night and will have one hour to create their masterpiece.

They will have the options of using a canvas provided but really its pretty open forum for whatever they want to create.

After the hour is up, you (the crowd) will judge your favorite and the winner will go through to the grand final in February for some serious prizes.

Raffle tickets will be available for purchase with your chance to win the art pieces created on the night with all money raised going straight to the artists.

There will also be some interactive fun and your favorite DJ – Mr Paradise spinning some phat beats.

It’s fun, it’s silly and it’s out right incredible watching the artists do their thing so get around it and book a table for the night cus they will book out quick.

Artists for the night are:

Anna Jauncey

Abby Wilson

Paul Greschner

Maddie Tetrault

Clancy Moonbeam

Thanks to our sponsors and donors:
