Art Evaluator

Applying for a scholarship is easy and makes you eligible for one of dozens of scholarships each month. Apply using our online Art Evaluator, which includes:


SKILLS EVALUATION

You will be tested in three categories based on different abilities. They include simple line drawing, tone and texture, and a free choice drawing. In the first two categories, you will pick one subject to reproduce. The last category, free choice, gives you the chance to express your personal skills and interests.
Take a photo of each drawing and upload it to its proper category. You can use a camera phone or digital camera to upload your photos.


PERSONAL QUESTIONNAIRE
