What is Art Masters?

8 Artists, 1 Venue, 1 Theme, 1 Hour and 1 (MYSTERY) Box of supplies.

Art Masters is an art competition in which professional artists can show their creative skills in a new and exciting environment. Artists will be given a theme in advance and their task is to express this theme with just one hour on the clock.

This years’ theme: DAY OF THE DEAD

There will be one winner and that winner will receive a prize. Following the hour-long contest, the audience will choose the winner by judging creativity and originality with the given theme, quality of the artistic composition, and overall impression of the art. In addition to this, all competition paintings will go to silent auction. Silent auction will start at $100.
