Prep for Art Contests & Competitions: Drawing & Painting
is a great opportunity for students to receive the guidance needed to make their work ready to enter into various regional, national, and international art competitions!
Throughout this class, students will develop their own unique ideas for their chosen contest, will be challenged to refine their pieces, and must meet all the necessary guidelines and requirements in order to be accepted into each competition. Our instructors will also mentor students to establish time management skills and habits, in order to complete artworks within a given timeframe, to read contest rules carefully, and to make lists of what they need to make their work contest ready. Finally, they will learn how to properly format their work for presentation to the judges, as many contests often require framing, and instructors will give support for posting and filling out applications neatly and on time.
