Types of Art Contests
The oldest form of art. Early galleries were on cave walls and are still available today. There are many types of paintings, these oil, acrylic, pastel, spray paintings and watercolors. If the type of painting isn't specified in the contest announcement you have room for creativity. But check the announcement.
When you think of a drawing it usually uses similar medium to a painting. But the tool is different. Artists generally use pencil (including watercolor pencils), pastels, crayon, ink, chalk and charcoal to create the artwork.
