The Knox County Art League is excited to be a part of this years help-portrait give back to the local community! In December, photographers around the world come together, along with hair stylists, make-up artists and others to provide something to those in need. This holiday season, you have the chance to give a family something they may have never had before—a portrait together. This is about GIVING the pictures, not taking them. These portraits will not end up in a portfolio, on a website, or be for sale. Money isn’t involved here.

We’re looking for volunteers in the community to be a part of this years global event of photographers, hair stylists, make-up artists and others to use their time, gear and expertise to give back to those in need. If you want to be a part of this benefit or to learn more please contact Glenn Frye or Jeff Kusner.
