UIL Art - A+

We are not supporting UIL A+ Art this year, but are interested in finding a new writer for this contest. Please contact us if you are interested and already have product samples or ideas!

The A+ UIL Art Contest encourages the study of selections from the official UIL List which changes every two years. The years 2015-16 & 2016-17 use the same list and the selection is scheduled change in 2017-18. The list includes 40 original artworks from the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC and some are from Texas Museums. Also view the Art Smart Bulletin.

In addition to becoming familiar with the mediums used in various works or painting, as well as recognizing hidden ‘gems’ or details, we recommend studying works by period and knowing which techniques were used by each artist. The contest encourages skills that far outlast rote or visual memorization of famous artworks and their painters. By studying Art in the UIL contest, young students also can learn to be observant and to develop empathy for what each artist was going through at the time of their creation thus gaining insight into the meaning behind each work of art.
