The convention draws hundreds of artists from around the world. Participants get a chance to meet and interact over four days of fun, learning, competitions and just plain drawing! Artists who attend are dazzled by the limitless techniques, styles and raw creativity that pervades the atmosphere of the event. Most artists leave the convention talking about the inspiration, friendships and knowledge they gleaned from being a part of this unique get together.
What happens at an ISCA convention?
One of the main attractions is the special guest speaker who is an inspirational caricature artist. The speakers deliver a keynote address, and often do demonstrations of their techniques and skills.
The convention also features seminars by members and guests. These seminars cover subjects like basic caricature techniques for students and members, advanced caricature, demonstrations of mediums and techniques, marketing and self promotion, gag bodies, legal and financial direction and much more. Seminars are included in the cost of convention admission. Many convention attendees consider the seminars to be invaluable learning tools.
The high point of the convention has got to be the fabulous artwork that is created right before your eyes. A large hall is transformed into the most unique and largest live caricature gallery in the world in just a few days! Imagine hundreds of caricaturists set up over every square inch of the hall, drawing each other for four days! Each artist has their own wall space to hang the best of their pieces… literally thousands of outstanding caricatures are created and hung up in every imaginable style and technique. It is truly inspirational.
