Wyland Art Contest

Wyland Art Classes at Dana Wharf

This special adventure includes prizes for art submissions.

All art submissions will be personally judged by artist Wyland. The three judged art categories are: 3-5, 6-8 and 9-12 years. The art contest features multiple winners and one grand prize winner.

The grand prize is a Wyland limited edition oil painting, valued at $1,500, entitled “Ancient Mariner.” This unique painting brings together the fiery sunset in the vein of his abstract expressionist work, with the anatomically detailed realism of his renowned sea life.

The result is a breathtaking look at nature that is pure Wyland. Photos courtesy of Dana Wharf.
