Current & Upcoming Events

Make It! Youth Art Competition

Date to be determined

The Make It! Competition is a friendly competition that encourages competitors to expand their imagination, practice their art skills, and push themselves to create something new and inspiring! In this 1 hour competition, you will receive supplies and instructions to create your artwork in front of a live audience of your friends, family, and community. You’ll also be able to walk around and get food from local food trucks, look at the artwork created by fellow student artists, watch demos, and create more artwork alongside your friends and family. At the end of the evening, we’ll have our Awards Ceremony and a Silent and Art Auction, where you’ll be able to purchase gift baskets and sell your own artwork.
Open to grades 3rd-5th and 6th-8th. Ask your art teacher to sign up or download the form here makeitsignupsheet
