CAMDC and CCACC Student Watercolor Competition News Release

大華府區華裔學生水彩畫比賽拉開帷幕

      

美京華人活動中心美京藝廊 (CCACC Art Gallery) 和位於華府的美國華人博物館 (Chinese American Museum Foundation) 為了倡導華裔學生美術創作與欣賞的風氣,以“Our Time” 為主題,特別舉辦大華府學生水彩畫比賽。繪畫的主題是廣義的,可以表達因疫情世界突然改變下的這特殊艱困時期的感受,也可以表達無關疫情氛圍的感受,我們希望藉此能激盪出學生的創意。我們很榮幸邀請到紐約知名的藝術家鍾耕略先生和馬里蘭大學藝術教授沈寬先生為此次水彩畫比賽的評審。此項比賽提供多項獎學金,凡入圍的作品將於明年春節期間在該博物館和美京藝廊聯合展出。

凡大華府地區華裔 K-12 年級參加的學生分為兩組比賽。報名即日起至十一月一日截止,作品電子檔送件截止日是十一月二十日下午五時截止;中文學校的學生請學校的美術老師推薦學生參加,其他學生請按規定送交作品電子檔,每名學生參加一次,以一件作品為準。 我們鼓勵喜愛繪畫的華裔學生踴躍參加, 報名登記表格和參加辦法可查看美國華人博物館網站 https://www.chineseamericanmuseum.org/artcompetition, 美京華人活動中心網站 https://www.ccacc-dc.org,
