Art Contest

2018-2019 Art Contest

It’s time for the Rotary Club of San Marino’s Annual Art Contest highlighting the variety of student art talent right here in community. Art is invaluable in nurturing creativity and developing culture; it is at the heart of humanity. This is why the Rotary Club of San Marino supports student art. Our panel of judges will look for a high level of artistic communication, composition, creativity, and artistic technique in your entry. These four aspects combine to produce an emotional response in the viewer. It is important that the artist draws the viewer in. Communication might be the very definition of art. How well does your art speak to the viewer? Composition is the art of arranging your elements to communicate your theme. Creativity is a child of imagination. Technique is the method or way the art is done to best communicate your theme.


3rd-5th grade is “I am inspired by……”
6th -12th grade choose your own theme.

San Marino Rotary’s Annual Art Contest is open to students from San Marino Unified School District schools. and Clairbourn School and Southwestern Academy.
