Competitive Portrait Drawing Call for Artists & Models


ROCK HILL, SC – The Arts Council of York County’s Competitive Portrait Drawing is a tournament style knockout battle that begins with sixteen artists paired off in sets of two. Each pair is in competition to create their best portrait of a model with just five minutes on the clock. Pencils down at the sound of the buzzer. The model in each pairing serves as judge and jury, choosing their favorite of the two portraits drawn of them. 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 in Round 4, with the decision going to the final model of the evening. The winning artist of the competition is crowned champion and is awarded the $100 grand prize.
