Dara Gold, Keen Tea Thyme's celebrity tea stain artist, is competing in an Art Battle! This venue, which takes place next week in Canada, gives 16 artists a chance to compete for the title of Art Champion based on votes from the audience.
How does this work? Ms. Gold explained in an e-mail that the 16 painters will paint over three rounds: eight in the first two, followed by four in the final round, all battling for the champion title. At the end of the first two rounds, the audience votes for their favorites, who will move on for the final round.
Ms. Gold is one of the eight pre-selected artists! Congrats, Ms. Gold! :) The other eight will be randomly selected.
Each painting will be available for auction at the end of the event. There will also be a small gallery of artwork created outside the art battlegrounds for sale in addition to contender pieces.
