2021 ArtiGras


Youth Art Competition

Celebrate the 36th anniversary of ArtiGras Fine Arts Festival on February 13 & 14, 2021 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 The Love of Art. In your students’ own way, have them create artwork of what The Love of Art means to them. Some ideas could involve their representation of art, what they love about art, or what art form they love best. 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 school in Palm Beach County may submit one piece of artwork from each grade level into the competition. All artwork is due by Friday, January 15, 2021. 

Please be sure to read rules and download entry form.
