In Paint Love’s signature style, our annual Art Auction brings together unique live art experiences with some of Atlanta’s favorite artists and, of course, amazing local art. All of the amazing paintings created live at the Paint Love Artist Challenge (see photos below) will be available for sale! 


New this year, the Paint Love Impact Awards will honor two project teams that went above and beyond making their Paint Love event extraordinary! 

Tickets are  $30  and include free food and drinks. Scroll down for more details.

Check out past Art Auctions: Last year's event at Monday Night Brewing featured Mike Lowery and Saniqthna Phansavanh. (See photos here)

The 2016 event featured metal artists Miranda Kyle, Audrey Dakin, and Alex Pate pouring an aluminum sculpture in a portable metal foundry on site. (Click here to check out photos)

Paint Love brings transformational art workshops to Atlanta area youth who face or are at risk of facing poverty or trauma.

Since 2013, Paint Love has been connecting local artists with Title 1 schools and nonprofits to empower kids who often have the least access to artistic programming through free, extraordinary creative workshops.

This video is a few years old, so the numbers aren't representative of our programming today, but it gives a great inside look at what Paint Love is all about! 

Paint Love projects provide a safe environment for self-expression, acceptance, and even emotional healing.

We believe every young person deserves access to the arts, and through support raised at events like the Paint Love Art Auction, we served over 3,000 kids with over 100 days of arts programming in 2017.

  1. What time is the event? 
    The event will go from 7-9:30pm.  The art auction bidding portion is currently slated to close at 9:15pm.
  2. What should I wear?
    Great Question...Creative Dressy. We had a wide range at our event last year from jeans to dresses, so feel free to have fun with it. To check out photos from last year's event click here.    
  3. Will there be food?
    Yes! We will announce the food soon.  There will also be beer + wine served. 
  4. Can you attend if you are under 21?
    Yes, guests under 21 are allowed to attend, but are not allowed to drink alochol.
  5. What if I can't make it and want to make a donation?
    That is so generous of you! Donate here
