Michael's Arts and Crafts has just announced it's annual Art Challenge and this year's contest sounds particularly exciting! http://www.michaels.com/artchallenge
Not only could entrants potentially win cash prizes, but the grand prize winner gets to travel to London to work for a week! I visited London back in 2013 with friends and loved it. It really is a beautiful city and what an amazing opportunity it would be to go back there and get a chance to work in an art studio, surrounded by such awesome sights and experiences. I've attached a few photos of my time in London - if for nothing else but to give me ideas on what work to submit!
