Draw Brawl Signup
While the Art Bash is in full swing, various contestants will be duking it out artistically in front of party goers. Similar to Ink Wars or Art Battle, our Draw Brawl is all about having fun and rising to the challenge.
Contestants will be given (1) black marker, (1) pencil, and (1) sheet of 16×20 bristol. They will have 20 minutes to create a drawing based on a theme that will not be announced until the clock starts ticking. Rounds will take place throughout the night, allowing people to mix and mingle while you’re drawing up on our little stage at Picnic / Dart Gallery.
- All skill levels / disciplines welcome. This is about having fun.
- We know drawing on the spot can be scary – we’re not looking for art stars, just awesome people willing to try something new.
- You are permitted to use ONLY the tools provided. No exceptions.
- One winner will be chosen by the audience each round, so bring friends to support you!
- Each winner will go head-to-head in a fourth and final round to win prizes.
Draw Battle Prizes
Aside from bragging rights, we have three prizes for the audience favourites:
- 3rd Prize: Gift Certificate to Dart Gallery
- 2nd Prize: Gift Certificate to DeSerres
- 1st Prize: $100 CASH (sweet, eh?)
Sound like something you want to participate in? Sign up below. Contestants will be selected based on number of entries and variety of style by the E3C Steering Committee members.
CLOSING DATE TO SIGN UP: SUNDAY, JANUARY 21, 11:59PM (moved back a few days as we recognize the 23rd is too last minute to contact contestants). ONLY THOSE SELECTED TO BE CONTESTANTS WILL BE CONTACTED.
