Mini Masterpiece Competition

Mini Masterpiece Competition

Entry Deadline: January 12, 2024

Exhibition: March 26 – May 16, 2024

“Big things come in small packages” is the perfect way to describe the annual Mini Masterpieces competition.  Now in its fifth year, we are once again calling for entrants to copy a famous work of art onto a 3”x 3” canvas panel. The competition is open to artists of all ages – from preschoolers to professionals- with awards given in youth & adult categories.

How to Participate


There are two options for entry

  1. Provide your own 3×3 canvas. Entry fee is $5, payable when you drop off your entry.
  2. Order your canvas from us. Entry fee is $5, plus $2.50 shipping and handling.

Canvases can no longer be ordered for delivery by mail. All entries must be received back to us by Friday, January 12.

What’s Next


Choose a painting by a famous artist that inspires you.


Replicate the work in miniature on a 3”x3” flat canvas panel.

Drop Off

Affix the identification tag to the back of your work and deliver to the Hoyt no later than January 12, 4 pm.


Three entries in both adult and youth categories will receive $150 purchase awards.


All entries will be exhibited at the Hoyt, March 26-May 12, 2024. Your entry fee covers return of your work via mail when the exhibition is over. (Purchase awards will not be returned.)


Entries will be featured daily on social media throughout the exhibition period. Share posts to educate your friends and family about famous art and artists!


Winning entries will be reproduced into magnets that will be available in the Hoyt Gift Shop. Buy one or collect them all to build your own refrigerator gallery!
