2023 ArtiGras

 

Youth Art Competition
presented by Baptist Health

Celebrate the 38th anniversary of ArtiGras Fine Arts Festival on February 18 & 19, 2023 as we invite Palm Beach County schools to participate and submit their students’ artwork to the Youth Art Competition!

The theme of this year’s ArtiGras Youth Art Competition is ArtiGras Island. Have your students create their own piece of art centered around what ArtiGras Island means to them. Ideas could revolve around Palm Beach County as an island or island life, beach, ocean, etc. Students could reflect on what makes living on an island fun to them, what they love about the beach, or even recreate their own tropical paradise. We ask for all of the artwork to incorporate the theme in some way, but the interpretation is completely up to the artist!

The ArtiGras Youth Art Competition is a juried art competition, for grade levels K-12 that features award money to the winning students and schools. Each art teacher from a school in Palm Beach County may submit one piece of artwork from each grade level into the competition. All artwork is due by Friday December 16, 2022. 

Please be sure to read rules and download entry form.

Awards
