Art Competition

Middletown Art Academy is pleased to announce its first annual Art Angel Fine Art Competition. Submit your masterpiece dedicated to the Art Angel and win a scholarship to study fine art in the year of 2013-2014.

Every year three talented young artists will be selected to create their own masterpieces according to a given inspirational theme. The best works submitted to us will be displayed in the academy’s gallery and we will have a public event to celebrate. The winners names will also be published in the local media: the theme for 2013 is Art Angel.

First place – a full tuition scholarship for Academic year 2013-2014 (summer not included) for any class, program, or workshop of their choice. The masterpiece will be professionally matted and framed by our own loyal supporter Middletown Framing (in a frame and mat of the artist’s choice from the store’s stock selection). It will also be featured on the Academy website and will be given the honor of representing the 2013 Art Angel Scholarship!

Second place – a full tuition scholarship for the fall 2013 semester for after-school or homeschool program and free matting of their work by Middletown Framing (in a mat of artist’s choice from the store’s stock selection).

Third place – receives a full tuition scholarship for summer 2013 Fine Art Camp.
