The Da Vinci Initiative Award for the Young Aspiring Artist
The Art Renewal Center (ARC) hosts an annual art competition for realist artists called the “ARC Salon.” There is now a special section of the competition for high school students. A $2,500 scholarship called The Da Vinci Initiative Award for the Young Aspiring Artist will be given to the winning artwork and can be used at any ARC Approved™ school or program. In addition, the winner will receive international recognition for their artwork, their instructor, and their school through the popular ARC website as well as publication in the ARC Salon catalogue. The work may also have the opportunity to travel in the live version of the exhibition, which will travel from New York City, to Sotheby's in Los Angeles, to the MEAM museum in Barcelona, Spain.
