Special Events


HiArt encourages its students to participate in competitions of all types to expand their creative and artistic horizons. Not only will this help them build their portfolio, but it will also continuously help develop their artistic and linguistic skills because they will need to create their own artist’s statement to support their visual graphics. Here are all the competitions you can join! We will be constantly updating this page with new competitions.
