Step 3: Checkout. Complete and checkout. This is where Students =< 18 years may enter up to two coupon codes.

Every artwork must have the Artist's correct Division and the Artwork's correct Category

ARTIST’S DIVISIONS: Artist’s division is based on your life experience with creating art. An artist must designate only one division and may move to a higher division up to Professional.

  • I-Professional Division: Artist’s choice for this designation (Professional artists making a living selling their art need to register as professionals. Artists promoting themselves as professional elsewhere or on their website, need to compete in the professional division.)
  • II-Semi-Professional Division: Artist’s choice to move up
  • III-Non-Professional Division: Artist’s choice to move up
  • IV-Adult Student Division:  Adult (over 18) who has created artwork for less than three years either through self-study or under the direction of an art teacher. After 2 years of College Art (4 art courses) or 3 years as a self taught Adult Student, any LSAG member must enter the Non-Professional Division or higher.
  • VES-Elementary School Student Division:  Any Elementary school student.  Homeschool students should register under the grade level the student would be in based upon their age equivalent, not skill level.  School students will be subdivided according to grade level.  Kindergarten through 5th grade are Elementary.
  • VMS-Middle School Student Division:  Any Middle school student.  Homeschool students should register under the grade level the student would be in based upon their age equivalent, not skill level.  School students will be subdivided according to grade level:  Grades 6-8 are Middle School.
  • VHS-High School Student Division:  Any High School student.  Homeschool students should register under the grade level the student would be in based upon their age equivalent, not skill level.  School students will be subdivided according to grade level.  Grades 9-12 are High School.


Though an artist may designate only one DIVISION, artist may enter artwork in up to 3 categories within that division for different pieces of artwork. The show chair and judge reserves the right to disqualify or move any artwork not entered in the appropriate Category.

  • Category A: Oil/Acrylic Painting – oil paintings and acrylic paintings painted like an oil painting
  • Category B: Watercolor/Acrylic Painting – watercolor and acrylic paintings applied with water giving the appearance of a watercolor painting
  • Category C: Pastels – pastels including pastels applied over a watercolor underpainting
  • Category D: Drawing – drawing of any kind & including Sumi-e and oriental brush painting

  • Category F: Photography – digital or film photography MINIMALLY manipulated or adjusted
  • Category G: Digital Art – all forms of digital art including but not limited to photography that has been SIGNIFICANTLY manipulated or altered using technology. If something starts with a photograph & is then altered with paint, pen, or anything OTHER THAN a computer, then it is NOT considered digital art. You may wish to consider Mixed Media (E) if two or more mediums are used.
  • Category H: Abstract/ Experimental/Non-Objective Art – in any medium
  • Category I: Sculpture – 3-D forms in various media including sculptures in relief.
  • Category J: Studio Fine Crafts – original fine crafts created in a studio environment including glass blowing, stained glass, printmaking, porcelain / ceramics, woodwork, jewelry, mosaic, weaving, fiber art, metal work, and other finely crafted items
