On your mark, get set… art!
The 12th annual student art show and auction gets underway at The Forks Market this weekend. The event features Red River College students in the Graphic Design program creating original works using a variety of drawing and painting techniques.
The pressure will be on the students, as they will have less than 24 hours to come up with a work of art on the spot. The creative juices start to flow on Saturday from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Artists will also have a couple hours on Sunday (9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.) to complete their projects.
The pieces will then be auctioned off to the highest bidder, starting at Sunday at 1:30 p.m.
Proceeds from the auction will go to Winnipeg Harvest and the Red River College Graphic Design Students’ Graduation Fund.
