National Painting Competition

Painting competitions are events where professional and amateur artists compete to create visual artworks utilizing different painting styles and techniques. A theme, topic, or subject is provided to the participants, and they express their artistic views using a variety of media, including oil, acrylic, watercolor, and mixed media.

“Painting is almost everything. It is the painter's identity, his style, and his conviction. Sketch the spirit and soul of what you see! We bring you a Painting Competition so that you can leave an accurate record of the experience of what one isn't, of what one doesn't know.”
