It's time... for a new contest!!!

Art Made Easy is sponsoring an art contest this fall!  

The Theme: Back to School!


What is your favorite part about going back to school? Seeing friends? Playing on a sports team? Joining the marching band? Eating in the cafeteria? Getting an "A" on your math test? 

Draw, paint, or somehow create a 2-dimensional piece of artwork depicting what you like best about going "Back to School". 


Official Rules: 

*Only one entry per person.

*Entry form must be filled out completely, including the age of the entrant.

*Contest is divided into three age groups:

1. Ages 7 and Under

2. Ages 8-12

3. Ages 13-17

*Entries can be made from any medium, including pastel, oils pastel, pen, pencil, charcoal, acrylics, watercolor, oils, mixed media and collage.

*Entries should be the sole work of the entrant. 

*To upload an entry, you may either scan a copy of the artwork or take a photograph. If taking a photograph, be sure the photo shows the artwork clearly.


**DEADLINE TO ENTER: September 30, 2014


JUDGING: 

Judging art is so subjective, and it can be really difficult for the judges and frustrating for the artists. So this time, the winner will be decided in this way:

1. The judges will choose their top five favorites in each age category. Those will be chosen based on: 

  • Interpretation of the theme: Back to School
  • Technical skill in creating the piece (age of artist will be taken into consideration)
  • Creativity

2. Those top 15 (5 from each age group) will be assigned numbers. A number will be randomly drawn using Random.org. That artist will be our winner!


**THE WINNER WILL BE ANNOUNCED BY OCTOBER 5! 


PRIZE:

The winner will receive an art prize package worth $30 or a gift certificate to Dick Blick Art Supplies or Amazon.com, as well as a featured spot on the Art Made Easy home page.
