MAKE HISTORY FROM YOUR HOME
We need your help to set a new world record! On Thursday, August 27, 2020 at 4:30PM EST, Robert Liberace will teach a 3-hour online figure drawing lesson to a worldwide audience. In addition to an afternoon of inspiration and learning from an internationally known artist, the Portrait Society will be attempting to break the Guinness World Record for Largest Online Figure Drawing Lesson.
WHAT CAN YOU DO TO BE COUNTED?
We know the last several months have been challenging for many of you while stuck at home and unable to travel for classes or workshops. We invite you to join us for a fun, one-of-a-kind opportunity to be counted with 5,000 artists from around the globe, to help us break a Guinness World Record for the Largest Online Figure Drawing Lesson. To do this, we will need 5,000 people to be tuning in online on Thursday, August 27 at 4:30EST for at least the first 30 minutes of the drawing lesson.
Why not be a part of history? Register today and you will be emailed a link on the morning of August 27 to join us in our attempt to make history. The participation cost is $10 with proceeds benefiting the Edward Jonas Memorial Fund and The Artists Fellowship. A Certificate of Participation awarded by Guinness Worldwide Records will be available to everyone who is part of this historical event.
P.S. If registration of $10 is a hardship please email Allison@portraitsociety.org for a waiver code.
