TEXAS CITY -- Are you a community college student who enjoys art and competition?
The inaugural Art Bout, a competition co-sponsored by College of the Mainland and the Gulf Coast Intercollegiate Consortium Art Committee, is open to students who would like to compete individually or as part of a group.
The event will be held at COM’s Fine Arts Building F-133 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Friday, March 2.
COM Art Instructor Kristy Peet spearheaded the event after finding the idea at a gallery in Houston.
“The Art Bout should be really fun,” Peet said. “It should be a really cool way to connect with people from other schools.”
Thirty to 40 students are expected to attend with several colleges, including Alvin Community College and Brazosport College, participating in the event.
Materials and a theme will be announced when the competition begins, and the artists will have three hours to complete their project.
Judges will select winners in the individual and team categories with the grand prize for each set at $100.
For more information, contact Peet at 409-933-8424 or
