Art Contest

2020-21 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.

Themes
3rd-5th grade is “ Water is Life ”
6th-12th grade choose your own theme.

Schedule
Deadline: March 29, 2021 at 11 pm
