War Paint 2019

War Paint Returns! 

DMSC's classic bracket-style drawing competition is back, this year at Proof Restaurant. Artists will be given a 1'x1' white board, black marker, and 20 minutes to create their piece inspired by a different category each round. An audience vote will determine which artists move on to the next round. In the final head-to-head round, both artists will have 1 hour, their choice of markers, and a 2'x2' white board to create their masterpiece. Pieces created during the event will be available for sale after the first round has commenced. At the end of the night, we'll crown the 2018 War Paint Champion!

This event is free to spectators, and open to all ages. Artists who wish to compete must register ($7 early-bird, $10 day-of).
