Bath Planet’s Youth Art Competition encourages students in grades K-8 or ages 5-13 to enter his/her original and personally handmade art in all forms of discipline. Integrated by Institute for the Arts & Education, the associated 501c3 non-profit organization, all entries are publicly displayed. The program exposes young artists to the rules and entrepreneurship opportunity of being part of a professional art show and exhibition. Young artists are encouraged to speak with the professional artists in the show and to ask them questions about participating in art shows as a career. To date, more than 2,800 students have participated in this program.

Hot Works Orchard Lake Fine Art Show provides students with an unmatched learning experience, and exposes families to artwork that they otherwise may not see.

Criteria for judging the youth art is based on technique/execution and originality, which is similar to the criteria for judging of the professional artist awards. Seven awards include:

  • One $100 Best Youth Artist
  • Three $50 Youth Art Awards of Excellence
  • Three $25 Youth Art Awards of Distinction

In addition, each winner receives a beautiful, colorful, two-foot-long ribbon, which is the same size ribbon that the professional artists receive.

On Sunday afternoon at 3pm at the show, Bath Planet’s Youth Art Competition awards are presented by Executive Producer Patty Narozny. She begins with, “Thank you for submitting your Youth Art Competition entries. Please understand that art is subjective. Even the best artists are not accepted into all the art shows they want to participate, nor do they win a prize in every art show they do. For the young artists who do not win, and you love creating your art, please do not give up. Please congratulate those who do win.

Following the awards announcements, sometimes the artwork made by the Young Artists is so compelling, original and well-done that patrons are interested in purchasing student art. A Young Artist may or may not win a prize in the competition, but if he/she happens to sell his/her art, that is the goal to becoming a successful, professional artist!
