Hand Cut Portraits by Master Silhouette Artist Karl Johnson — Reserve Your Spot!


Just in time for the holiday season, master Silhouette Artist Karl Johnson will be creating hand cut silhouette portraits just for KidFriendly DC readers!  The event will take place virtually by appointment via Zoom on Friday, November 12, and Saturday, November 13.  Each session takes about 10 minutes, and all ages are welcome, even the squirmiest ones!



Sign up here and be sure to reserve a time slot for each child (note that appointments are listed in Pacific Time, so convert for EST, three hours later, for you).  Silhouettes are $35, and duplicates and frames are also available.  Portraits will be shipped for free in time for the holidays, but they make for wonderful gifts for all kinds of occasions.  This event sold out quickly when we hosted it in the spring, so snag your spots soon!

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.
