Giveaway: Win a Hand Cut Portrait by Silhouette Artist Karl Johnson!

On Saturday, November 18, renowned Silhouette Artist Karl Johnson is coming to Barstons Child’s Play in Chevy Chase, where he will be creating hand cut silhouettes by appointment. Each one takes only a minute or two and all ages are welcome, even the squirmy ones! Original silhouettes are $30 each, but I’m giving one away to a lucky KFDC reader — all you have to do is enter the giveaway below for a chance to win it.

If you want to guarantee a portrait with Karl, register for a time slot here. Reserve just one time slot per person, as duplicates are cut at the same time. Payment is made at the event.

Barstons Child’s Play is located at 5536 Connecticut Ave NW in Chevy Chase, DC. And PS: He’ll be at other locations around the area next week – see below for details.
