    Artist’s division is based on your life experience with creating art. An artist must designate only one division and may move to a higher division up to Professional.

    • I-Professional Division: Artist’s choice for this designation (Professional artists making a living selling their art need to register as professionals. Artists promoting themselves as professional elsewhere or on their website, need to compete in the professional division.)
    • II-Semi-Professional Division: Artist’s choice to move up
    • III-Non-Professional Division: Artist’s choice to move up
    • IV-Adult Student Division:  Adult (over 18) who has created artwork for less than three years either through self-study or under the direction of an art teacher. After 2 years of College Art (4 art courses) or 3 years as a self taught Adult Student, any LSAG member must enter the Non-Professional Division or higher.  

    Note, that in the LSAG database the Artist’s Division in a REQUIRED field.  If you do not designate your Artist Division, you will be initially set up as a Division IV as a default. It is your responsibility to correct your Artist’s Division in LSAG.
