Call for student art for Edmonds Arts Festival

Mar 06, 2014

K-12 student artists, including those home-schooled, are invited to submit their art for consideration in the Student Exhibit of the Edmonds Arts Festival.

Open Class entries will be received and photographed at the Edmonds School District Office, located at 20420 68th Ave. W. in Lynnwood, on May 2 and 3.

Guidelines for entry are posted on the Student Exhibit web page at http://www.edmondsartsfestival.com/the-festival/student-art.

Open Class entries will be juried by two professional artists, and results will be sent out the third week of May.

Artwork will be judged on the following criteria: originality, technique, composition, risk-taking, and craftsmanship.

Mediums include oil, acrylic, watercolor, charcoal, pastel, ink, crayon, print work, textiles, clay, fused glass, photography, and recycled materials.

The top 20 artists will each receive a $50 award, and a graduating senior artist will receive the Pederson Family Award for Excellence in Community Service.

The exhibit will take place on Father’s Day weekend, June 13-15, at the Frances Anderson Center in Edmonds.

This exhibit is sponsored by the Edmonds Arts Festival Foundation, which provides students in the Edmonds School District with grants and scholarships.

Much of the work on display in the student exhibit will be a direct reflection of this support and investment in art education.

Open Class submissions of artwork are due May 3 at the Edmonds School District office.
