Art Challenge Details

Open to Seton High School Students, grades 9-12. Seton’s first art challenge starts with a lofty and fiery theme; the assumption of the Prophet Elijah in a whirling storm of fire, leaving his disciple behind clutching at his cloak. It is a reading from the Scriptures celebrated in Mass this month.

We look forward to your creativity and colorization of this theme! Once done, take care to scan it in carefully so that it’s clear and in high resolution, and then upload the file here on this page.

We’re also looking forward to a good portrait of you, the artist, perhaps even holding/standing next to your masterpiece.

If you have any questions, ask them below in the chat section and we’ll answer as soon as we can.


How to Enter: Register for free today to enter this challenge, and fill out the form below.

Theme: Elijah being assumed in the fiery chariot (2 Kings 2:11).

Accepted Mediums: watercolors, pencil sketches, charcoals and/or acrylic paints.

Judging: art will be judged on composition, proportion, realism and attention to detail/artistic technique, and how is depicted the spirit of the scene.

Winners: If enough art of note is provided, first and secondary winners from each grade will be showcased here online. First place challenge contestants may be featured in the upcoming issue of the Bayley Bulletin.

      Yes, so long as there’s no direct tracing. Your artpiece should show some difference from the original, something that makes it uniquely yours. Great question!
