Student Battle

The Versus Student Battle invites up to 24 artists from local and regional high schools to come create original artwork in just 20 minutes in front of an audience of their peers. The 2023 Versus Student Battle will take place from 9 – 11 a.m. on Tuesday, February 21. There are only 12 spots available for each medium, making entry into Versus available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Student attendees will vote for their favorite pieces in both the two-dimensional and three-dimensional competitions, and winners will be awarded the People’s Choice Award. Additionally, all competitors will be judged by a panel of industry professionals, who will award one student in each discipline the title of Student Battle Champion.

All artwork created during Versus: A Live Art Battle becomes the property of Mark Arts and will be sold as part of the fundraiser with one hundred percent of the proceeds benefitting Mark Arts’ educational mission. Mark Arts also reserves the right to reproduce artwork for publicity and marketing purposes.
