Six talented artists will compete in three rounds, each with a 25-minute time limit.
The raffle system allows the audience to cast their votes for the top artwork in each round. Each round is assigned a different ticket color:
Round (1): Red
Round (2): Blue
Round (3): Yellow
Each painting will have a silent auction associated with it. 50% of painting sales will go to the artists. For any paintings that are not bid on during the event, they will be raffled off to the voters at the end of the event.
At the end of each round, the audience will judge and vote for the top artwork created during that round.
The winner of each round will move on to the next round until a final winner is crowned.
You will be provided with an easel, a headlamp, a large plastic dropcloth, and an 18x24 canvas to create your artwork.
Depending on the event, you may have a specific theme assigned to you or be able to approach the canvas in a freestyle fashion. This allows for a diverse range of artwork and creativity.
Artists may also be given the opportunity to set up a table to sell their work, depending on the venue. This is a great way to showcase your talent and sell your artwork to interested buyers.
You will have 25 minutes to create your artwork in each round. Be prepared to work quickly and make bold decisions under pressure!
Remember, the audience will be judging and voting for the top artwork in each round, so make sure to create something that will stand out and impress the crowd.
