A Vancouver artist is offering B.C. secondary school art students a chance to have their work published, receive credit for art supplies and attend a two-day painting workshop.
Deb Chaney’s Illuminate the Artist Within Illustration Competition is also aimed at increasing student awareness of working artists and career opportunities in the arts.
“When I was in high school I loved art and had a natural affinity to being creative, however I was not encouraged or supported to pursue an ‘artsy’ career and did not realize what was possible,” Chaney said in a news release.
The competition is open to all B.C. high school students and entry deadline is Oct. 15.
Those interested are asked to email three drawings to firstname.lastname@example.org
Winners are to be announced Oct. 25.
