Application Deadline: April 19, 2019
Announcing the 7th Annual Battle of the Artists, a street painting event held on Battle Street in Historic Downtown Manassas. Artists are being sought to create art on the pavement using chalk pastels.
There is no entry fee, and art supplies are provided. $50 will be awarded to the “Judge’s Choice” painting, and $25 to the “People’s Favorite”. This contest takes place during “One Love: Celebration of Life with the Arts”.
Street painting tips and techniques are posted at www.ArcadiaArtStudio.com; if you haven’t done this before, we recommend that you read them before submitting your application.
Who may apply: Any adult artist (18 and up), or group of artists. Student groups and individuals under 18 may apply if they are under the direct supervision of a teacher or guardian. Space is limited; first come, first served. (Note for groups: each group member (or legal guardian for artists under 18) will be required to sign a release statement when they check in on April 27.)
What you may paint: Each artist/group needs to submit a copy of their proposed street painting image. This may be an original work, or a copy of another artist’s work or photograph. Artists may paint any subject as long as it is appropriate for family viewing and does not contain commercial messaging (logos, slogans etc.)
Space: Each artist or group may choose between a 4’x4’, 6x6’ or 8x8’ space to draw in.
Check in: Artists need to check in at the Artists’ Tent at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday, April 27th to receive their assigned space and supplies. Spaces not claimed by 10:30 a.m. may be reassigned to another artist.
NOTE: Use of the nearby parking garage is highly recommended (and free!)
Supplies: All supplies necessary to complete the drawings will be provided. Only the pastels provided may be used to complete the drawings; however, a list of additional permitted materials will be available on the website. This list will also be e-mailed to accepted artists.
Time: Artists may start painting as soon as they have registered, and continue working until 4 p.m. The Judge’s Choice will be announced around 4 p.m. Saturday. The People’s Favorite votes will be tallied around 8 p.m.
Weather: In the event of light, intermittant showers, the festival will take place as scheduled. If heavy rain occurs, plastic will be available to cover the drawings. In case of all day rain, the Battle of the Artists event will be cancelled.
To apply: Fill out the attached application and return it by April 19, 2019.
Please read it carefully: only complete applications with required attachments will be accepted.
