Student Art Darlene Boyd

Today I am passing on a message from Darlene Boyd, artist in many mediums and writter for the San Juan Star--oh, yes, teacher and sculptor. She has exciting news for art students.
Dear Art Coordinators, Teachers, Students and Interested Persons,

Attached is the information for the 2013 Student Art Talent Contest, for students in grades 9 to 12. This contest is sponsored by the Native Daughters of the Golden West. This is being sent out early to give the students ample time to create an exceptional work for this exhibit. There are cash awards available, plus the first place winner has a second chance to win another award at our Grand Parlor in June. The deadline is April 19. Please read the prospectus for further details. If there are any questions, please feel free to contact me. We look forward to seeing many wonderful works of art again this year.

An original depiction of California native plants and/or wild life, or an event or people that are part of California history or a California landmark are acceptable. The subject may be anywhere in California. All artworks must have been created by the student within two years prior to the contest deadline.

The artwork must be accompanied by an entry form that includes a brief description of the subject and the reason it is a significant historical landmark or historical event or period in California history.

Limit is
ONE entry per student.

Type of mediums that may be used:

Acrylic, oil pastel, water color

charcoal, pencil, collage mixed media
Size requirements
of entry, before framing or matting: Minimum Image size = 8 x 10 inches Maximum framed size = 36 inches by 36 inches
Preparation for exhibit:All images need one completed copy of the entry form
attached to the back. (3 copies for entry.)

All art works must be READY TO HANG, NO EXCEPTIONS!!! This means properly matted with a supportive backing and hanging device and/or framed and wired. If glass is needed, you must use PLEXI-GLASS or clear acrylic, not real glass.

Acrylic and oil paintings do not need to be framed, unless there are staples showing, but do show to better advantage if they are framed. If unframed, edges must be painted and presentable. They must also be wired for hanging.

Artworks not representing the good spirit of the contest, as determined by the Committee and the juror, will not be accepted.
