A 24 hour art challenge

10am October 4th thru 10am October 5th, 2013
SCAD Atlanta

Think you’re tough? Are you a creative mastermind? Do you think you have what it takes to pull off artistic wizardry under impossible deadlines? Then clear your schedule and let’s see what you’re made of.

Led by faculty, students from multiple disciplines endeavor to create completed works of art during this 24 hour art marathon. The event begins promptly at 10am on Friday, Sept. 28th. Participants should bring their own art supplies, but coffee and food will be provided throughout the night.

Challenges are offered in a variety of disciplines, across many majors. Check the challenges tab to determine what category is the best fit for you. Email your faculty leaders with any questions. There will be prizes and giveaways and in some cases showings for those who can complete their artwork.

Can you generate?
