Skillful use of perspective (or omitting perspective altogether) is a critical component in many great works of art. Some examples:

  • Linear – lines of buildings, roads, etc. appear to come together (converge) at a single point on the horizon.
  • Atmospheric – the artist uses color changes to show what is near to the viewer (darker colors) and what is far away (lighter colors).
  • Visual – the artist uses the size of the object to show what is near and what is far away or overlaps people or objects, showing what is in front and what is behind.
  • No Perspective – there is no sense of depth; everything looks flat, as in most Medieval and many modern and contemporary images.

All artists must complete online entry application.
