year, we host a Student Art Show for Paulding county residents under
age 18 in 7 different age categories. Students may enter one entry with
a $2 entry fee. A judge from out of the county with an art background
is chosen each year. Each student receives a certificate and award money
is given to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners in each category. The public
is invited to attend the Awards Ceremony Reception and the artwork is
on display for a whole month. All are considered winners in our
eyes for entering and it gives them good experience to see what it is
like to have their artwork on display at a real Art Gallery. The 2011
Student Art Show drew 188 entrants - our largest participation ever!
NOTE: The 2013 Student Competion will be held the first weekend in MARCH. Previous Student Competitions were always held in February, however we have changed to March to coincide with Youth Art Month.
