After the show floor closes, stick around for this special event hosted by Stuart Sayger in the hotel lounge from 9:00 -11:00!
Some will drink, others will draw! Of course most will do both! Saturday, following our “Preview Day”, Noted local artist Stuart Sayger will host the first Midwest Toy Fest Drink & Draw.
Drink & Draw is a chance for fans 21 and over to meet talented artists in a relaxed setting and watch as they create on-the-spot masterpieces. For aspiring amateurs, it’s a great chance to rub elbows—and ink pens—with the pros and have some fun under the watchful eye of Sayger!
Sayger will give a brief introduction to the evening and then the fun will start!
Admission to this 21-and-over event is included with your purchase of 2-Day admission to Midwest Toy Fest and basic art supplies will be provided!
Artists of all skill levels will compete in one of two categories:
Advanced: The race is on! Artists will be given an assignment to complete within the 2 hour time frame. The winner (determined by a panel of judges) will receive a table in artist alley at next year's Midwest Toy Fest! *Artists competing in this category are encouraged to bring their own supplies*
Basic: Drink and draw! Bring your friends, relax, enjoy a drink, and draw whatever you want — heck, you can draw your cat for all we care! Artists competing in this category will have a chance to win a Clerks movie poster signed by director Kevin Smith!
Additionally, one artist will receive a judges' choice prize — a $50 gift card to Drakes, so just come and have fun!
*Seating is limited and available on a first come, first served basis.
