Check out below for some amazing fact about this year’s show!
We’re thrilled to announce that we had a total of 1722 breathtaking pieces of artwork on display, representing the talent and imagination of young artists from across our community.
Here’s a quick breakdown of the incredible participation we saw:
314 pieces from 3rd-4th graders
378 pieces from 5th-6th graders
442 pieces from 7th-8th graders
267 pieces from 9th-10th graders
294 pieces from 11th-12th graders
What’s even more exciting is the significant growth we’ve witnessed! Almost every category saw an increase in participation, with notable expansions in Color Drawing (18% growth), Relief (28% growth), Mixed Media 2D (18% growth), and Digital art, which saw an amazing growth of 62.5%!
A special shoutout to our budding young artists in the 3rd-4th grade category – we nearly doubled the submissions this year, with an additional 146 pieces compared to last year!
We’re immensely proud to have hosted 35 different schools, fostering a vibrant artistic community and providing a platform for budding talents to shine.
