The Arts Council of York County is hosting Competitive Portrait Drawing on Friday, November 22nd, at 6 p.m., at Center for the Arts, 121 E Main Street, Rock Hill, South Carolina.
It’s free to watch and free to compete as an artist.
It costs $10 to be a model. Models get to pick up the portraits drawn of them after November 25th, 2019.
Here’s how it works:
16 artists will be paired off in sets of two, competing to create their best portrait of 8 models with just five minutes on the clock.
When the buzzer goes off, pencils go down.
Then the model in each pairing serves as the judge, choosing their favorite of the two portraits. The winning artist from each pair then moves on to the next round, until only two artists remain.
The final two artists go head-to-head, drawing a local VIP, with the VIP making the final decision.
The winning artist is awarded $100.
