That's Brian Neher's mantra for his upcoming free art contest, and it is one that I can certainly identify with. These are truly the three essentials I've found that really do lend themselves to artistic growth. And without any one of them, the others are less effective.
So when Brian let me know that art competitions were on his radar (past entries, above), and that he was pulling together a strong list of sponsors like Richard Schmid and Daniel Gerhartz, plus prizes from Yale University Press, Blick Art Supplies, and Jerry's Artarama, among others, I was really impressed. It is so gratifying to know that there are so many artists out there working to put together art contests that can really make a difference to artists.
We at Artist Daily and American Artist want to support Brian's important mission to reach artists and help them along their individual creative roads, which is why we have donated a one-year digital subscription as part of the Grand Prize package for the art competition.
If you are looking for a way to recharge your painting or drawing practice, or are simply interested in gaining some well-deserved recognition through art competitions, this free art contest could very well be for you. Enjoy!
