Empowering A Young Artist

In the Autumn 2014 issue of COLORED PENCIL Student we discussed the Pros and Cons of getting an art degree. We'd love to hear about what your experience has been or what side of this issue you fall on - leave your comment below!

Q: Is a college degree crucial for a career in art?


If college is a dream for you or your child, this year, with the help of sponsors, to empower an aspiring artist, Jerry's Artarama is offering a financial award of $5,000* as well as $500 in art supplies from JerrysArtarama.com to a Graduate Student, Undergraduate Students or High School Senior who is going into the arts!

ADVANCED WINNER -



Jenny Luan Frye
 WHY IT WON: 
What a wonderful composition! The most outstanding part of this piece is the way you handled the ceramic, the highlights and reflections really allows the viewer to understand what this surface is and what it would feel like to touch it. You met the challenge of the candle with a beautiful glow and really improved the image from the original photograph. We can’t stop looking at all the detail that you put into the patterns and how well you executed the curvature of each piece. An honor to have you participate!


BEGINNER WINNER -



Theresa Harrison

WHY IT WON:  

Such a stand out piece with your creative additional of the sunflowers. The yellows and oranges compliment the blues perfectly! We love the overall use of the photo and felt you were spot-on with your interpretation of the individual pieces, they lay wonderfully on the surface and the additional colors on the table gives it an extra dimension. The technique you used on the leaves really worked great as well. The only critique is the small vase – I think it got a little muddy and could use additional highlights to really make it pop out. Thank you for this gorgeous submission!
