The Event

Each artist or team will participate in three different art challenges.

Each artist or team will be given a 20" x 20" piece of wood to paint on or build off of for each challenge.

For each challenge, the judge will give the Artist a theme (anger, beauty, motion, etc) or "subject" (avian, person, inanimate object, etc), the artist(s) will then have a 10 minute "prepare/sketch/think" period, a 20 minute art creation period, and a 10-15 minute wrap up/display and judging period.

The event will be open to the public to come in and observe the artists are work.

After the work is completed, the public will have a chance to buy the work for $60. The sale of the work will be split 50/50 between the artist and Somerville Open Studios.
