Each spring, for over 60 years, we celebrate student achievement in the visual arts at the Annual Citywide student “YOUNG ARTISTS” Exhibition. All of the artwork displayed is created in art classrooms taught by certified art specialists. All District art teachers are invited to submit their best student artwork.
The student artwork showcased in this exhibition demonstrates the active and complex learning that takes place in art classrooms across the District and that students are learning the essential skills required for global competitiveness in the 21st Century. The outstanding artwork in this exhibit is indicative of all visual arts instructional areas including drawing, painting, 2 and 3 dimensional design, sculpture, ceramics, photography and creative digital media that represents schools with positive distinction. Many local organizations sponsor individual student and group awards, which are distributed at an annual “YOUNG ARTISTS” Awards Ceremony.
