Hi, this is the second time that I am organizing an art award for artists who took part in my art classes at some stage of their career. The first time was 10 years ago. To start, before I get an online form, you can email me your full name, address, contact phone number, email, name of the painting/s, medium, Size and when and where you did classes with me. One important thing is that artwork you submit has not been completed during the art class.

Attach images of the artwork and pay fee of $15 per artwork to Nemesh Art account: 03-0155-0740265-00
