Students in grades K-8 or ages 5-13 are encouraged to enter his/her original art that will be publicly display in the art show. There is $250 in Youth Art Awards presented on Sunday at 3pm at the show. The program exposes students to the entrepreneurship of doing art shows for a living and brings families to the art show and exposes them to great art. This program is a vital art education program as art education is cut back in many schools. The deadline to apply is February 15.
