Donna Dewberry started out as a homemaking expressionist, decorating her home with what she had available. Developing her career early on by painting designs on tin surfaces, she ended up creating art history with a unique style she designed called "One Stroke" painting. This technique has now become famous with 4,500 teachers worldwide. She now offers over seventy books and thirty instructional videos.
If you are a "One Stroke" painting fan, Donna Dewberry and Home Shopping Network are having an original art contest that could suit your style. There will be prizes awarded in four categories, Home Decor, Fashion Fabric, Glass and Ceramics, and One Stroke Painting Instructor. In all four categories, submitted entries must use the FolkArt brand of paints.
The First Place winners in the Home Decor, Fashion Fabric, and Glass and Ceramics categories will be flown to St. Petersburg, Florida with $270 expense money, where they will attend a four hour painting class with Donna Dewberry. They will also be awarded a $250 HSN shopping spree and will appear on HSN TV during one of Donna's Shows.
Second place winners in those same categories will receive $500 worth of Plaid Craft products and a $100 HSN shopping spree, and those in third place will be awarded $250 worth of Plaid Craft products and a $50 HSN shopping spree.
If any of the winners in the above-mentioned categories designate having a certified instructor, their teacher will also be awarded a prize ranging from $200 to $500 in value.
For entries in the One Stroke Painting Instructor category, the First Place prize is $500 in Plaid Craft products and a $500 HSN shopping spree, Second Place is $250 in Plaid Craft products and a $250 HSN shopping spree, and Third Place is $100 in Plaid Craft products and a $100 HSN shopping spree.
