The Purpose of Art Contest
The Academy’s instructors encourage students to participate in art contests. Winning contest can give students a great sense of accomplishment and confidence. Most importantly, students learn a lot by just participating contests. They learn to work under pressure and time, and putting their best effort (extra details and best craftsmanship, and patience) in order to make one of the kind of art work: It is a lot of work. Indeed, many students earning acceptance to top universities have art contest experiences. The message the educators here give students is that just as you strive for excellence in art, you must try your best in everything you do.
