DESCRIPTION

The Young Arkansas Artists exhibition has grown to be one of the most popular exhibitions held at the Arts Center. The YAA showcases artwork by Arkansas students, kindergarten through 12th grade. More than 600 works in a wide variety of media are entered annually. Members of the Arkansas Art Educators Association jury the entries, selecting approximately 125 works for the exhibition. One "Best of Class" and two "Honorable Mentions" are selected for each grade by a guest juror. Each winner's school receives a monetary prize to help fund the arts program in his/her school. Selections from the Young Arkansas Artists Exhibition travel to schools and other venues in Arkansas as part of the Arts Center's State Services traveling exhibition program.
