LSAG: Database Usage / Adult Student Category / Newsletter Holiday

Know the Rules:

Use of the database is your agreement to the full LSAG prospectus as shown on the website.  

While a league might choose to welcome pieces that do not qualify under LSAG rules to its show,
Members & show participants may NOT add pieces to the database that are not appropriate for an LSAG show according to our rules.

Use of the database acknowledges each artist's understanding AND compliance of ALL of the rules.  
Therefore those pieces that go against the rules CANNOT be entered on the database.
This means NO nudes in the database; 
NO violence/ gore/ profanity/ obscenities in the database;
NO copies in the database;
and NO works that have been made as a result of a collaboration in the database...
and NO recording of wins thereof.

While your show might choose to accept any of these categories,
they are NOT eligible for entry or acknowledgement by LSAG.  
Artists may NOT use the LSAG database to enter them as eligible artworks NOR have them represented as winners.  Again, they are:
-nudity (partial or full; back or front)
-violence, gore, or profanity / obscenities 
(visually or in text or title)
-copies  (ALL artworks MUST be the original work of the artist)
-works that have been made as collaborations  
(only ONE artist may have worked on the piece from start to finish regardless of  an industry or craft standard) 


Have a degree in art?  Are you a teacher of art?

We will be happy to help promote your expertise in the field of art as a teacher or demo artist,
you do NOT qualify as an Adult Student or Non-Professional 
in our shows.  This should be obvious.
Please adjust your division to reflect your expertise.

If you are listed as an Adult Student
you must be someone who is 
in their first 2 years of college level art 
(and not entering your 3rd year) 
be new to creating art within your first 3 years of being 
self taught or taking lessons.

Leagues may NOT have an independent policy of allowing any new member to enter at the Adult Student level.
This is against LSAG rules.
Please refer to the very specific guidelines for Adult Students on the prospectus / rules & guidelines which is located on the website. 

Our strength is in the integrity of our members...and our leagues.


It was announced last week that the Database is OPEN and ready for business!
Please pay close attention to the confirmation when you enter a piece in the database.
