Skill Building Challenge News; Cycle 4 winners, Cycle 5 announced!

The results of our Skill Building Challenge, Cycle 4 are in…!  This cycle saw our greatest turnout yet.  Our judges had a very difficult time choosing the winner of this cycle, but ultimately one student’s efforts claimed the winner’s prize.  Without further ado, we would like to congratulate the winner of our fourth Skill building Challenge..



As a “Thank you” for his hard work and dedicated efforts, “PaintingStallion” will be receiving a drawing from one of our instructors.  Challenge winners also receive a written critique of their work, to better help them push forward and improve their drawing and painting skills.

“PaintingStallion” isn’t the only student who will be receiving a personalized critique…  Our Skill building Challenges now name an “Honorable Mention” in addition to a winner, and award them with a written critique.  Cycle 4’s honorable mention goes to…



“Bradwynn:Jones'” impressive skill gain over the course of the competition led our team of judges to name him as Cycle 4’s “Honorable Mention.”


If you are a student of our online program and are interested in receiving your own personalized critique from our team of instructors, we urge you to participate in Cycle 5, our next Skill Building Challenge.  Cycle 5 promises to be a very special Skill building Challenge, as we have a treat in store for all participants.. We at the Watts Atelier are dedicated to your education, and want to see you succeed in your journey into the arts.  It’s because of this that we are offering personalized, written critiques to all Cycle 5 participants who submit their in-progress images by February 10th.  

Please visit the forums, connect with your peers, and participate in our Cycle 5 Skill Building Challenge to receive your critique from our team of instructors.

Congratulations again to the Cycle 4 winners, and best of luck to everyone looking to “Embrace the Challenge” in Cycle 5!
