Here at STRADA we are dedicated to helping artists improve their art, meet their goals and be recognized for the work they create. Many of you are familiar with the STRADA Monthly Challenges held in January and September. These are a great way to grow as an artist. Additionally, competitions are also an important way to share your work with new audiences. The Art Renewal Center's Salon is the largest competition for realistic art in the world with $100,000 in cash prizes awarded. We are excited to announce that this year they have created a new category for Plein Air Work. If you are interested in submitting, the deadline is coming up on November 15. Check out this link for submission information. And wherever your artistic journey takes you...go out and make your mark!
