International Festival Collage

The International Festival is an annual event hosted by the International House. Second time to participate at the portrait drawing booth, Scott Shepard and I spend 5 hours sketching portraits for the various visitors. Fortunately, Kaitlyn, an UCD art student, joined us to ease the long lines.

The participants were great models – sitting for us from 10 to 20 minutes. It was great time to know their stories, where they are from, how they arrived at the States, and what they hoped to achieved while here. I met people from South Africa, Ireland, New Zealand, Sudan, Persia….I even learned that handball is popular in Ireland, not soccer.
