The Student Concours: Tradition in atelier education

See a Video of a Class Concours Here

Each year from January into May, student work is exhibited in the Phyllis Harriman Mason Gallery.  These exhibits showcase the work of all the school's students in every discipline (painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, mixed media). Each week the concours changes in order to accomodate all the classes at the League. The student concours are open to the public seven days a week; most of the artwork is available for purchase.

Each instructor selects student work for the class concours, which is in turn judged by other instructors at the League. The judges award  Red Dots for those works deemed "best in show." The highlights of all the concours can be seen in June in the annual Red Dot Exhibition. Traditionally, several pieces in the Red Dot show are purchased for the League's Permanent Collection.
