Realism High School Art Competition with $2,500 Scholarship

Call For Entries
Students 13 to 19 Years of Age
Deadline December 1 at 8am PST

Check out this special opportunity for students ages 13-19!

Because of DVI’s and ARC’s commitment to introduce skill-based training techniques to the next generation, we are pleased to announce that this year’s ARC Salon Competition will include a side competition for high school students. A $2,500 scholarship will be awarded for the winning high school student’s artwork that can be used at any ARC Approved™ school or program. In addition, the winner will receive International recognition for their artwork, their instructor, and their school through the ARC website as well as publication in the ARC Salon Catalogue, to be published by ACC Art Books, and distributed to the mainstream book market. The work may also have the opportunity to travel in the live version of the ARC Salon Exhibition, which will travel to the MEAM Museum in Barcelona, Spain and the Salmagundi Club in New York City. These works by our talented youth will not compete in the main categories of the ARC Salon, but in a separate division specifically for young students. Many finalist works by students in this age range will also gain recognition on the ARC website and in the ARC Salon Catalogue. If your student attends a Title 1 school and this fee would be a barrier to entry, please write to davinciinitiative@gmail.com This award will be juried by Kara Lysandra Ross, DVI CEO, Mandy Hallenius, DVI President, and Frederick C. Ross, ARC Chairman.
