Student Competition

Every year, we host a Student Art Show for Paulding county residents age 3-18 in 7 different age categories. Students may enter one entry with a $2 entry fee. Each student receives a certificate and award money is given to the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners in each category. A judge from out of the county with an art background is chosen each year. The public is invited to attend the Awards Ceremony Reception and see the wonderful artwork. 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 2015 Student Art Show drew 220 entrants - our largest participation ever!

Start working on artwork to be entered NOW!
$420 in cash prizes will be awarded to 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners in each category. All students will receive a participation certificate.
