Calling All Artists: Sketch the 'Dale

JOhnBelbustiThe Village of Scarsdale Parks, Recreation and Conservation Department is looking for all of the artists of Scarsdale to participate again in this special community program.

Whether you consider yourself a beginner, advanced or a professional, every artist who resides in our amazing village has a favorite building or location, view, or image, that they would love to sketch and submit for all to see. Now is your chance to share it with your community!

Here is how it works: determine what level of an artist you feel you are, sketch something or someplace that can be verified as being located in Scarsdale and submit a physical sketch of up to 11”X 17” along with a $10.00 entrance fee (to be allocated for prizes). Artists will be given 2 weeks to complete their masterpiece and once submitted will be judged by a panel of residents who know and love this wonderful community. There will be prizes awarded for each level so make sure to pick the right level. All images will be scanned and displayed on various media platforms (website/cable tv) for all to see.

To ensure all holidays can be captured during this program registration opens December 2, 2021, at 9:30 AM and all sketches & waivers must be physically submitted by Monday, January 10th, 2022, to the Parks and Recreation Department located at The Supply Building, 244 Heathcote Road, 2nd floor by 5:00 PM to be eligible.
