Our inaugural show was an unqualified success! Follow the link below to see pictures of all the entries, People's Choice Awards winners, and pictures from the event!
March Break is coming up, what a great opportunity to take time and create an entry! We'd also like you to know that if any student cannot meet the $15 registration fee for any reason, we are able to sponsor registration kits through the generous donations of our members. We do not want financial constraints to prevent any child from participating.
This is open to all youth from 8 to 18. There is no jurying process - every piece will be accepted as long as it does not exceed three feet in width.
