Celebrating a new generation of artists.

A key element of the Edmonds Arts Festival’s mission is to promote exposure to art and art education to the youth in our community. Partnering with the Edmonds School District, the Festival is one of the pioneer events in the United States that displays more than 1,000 pieces of art from K-12 students. The 2016 gallery will showcase art from 32 Edmonds School District schools, six private schools, and individual Home-schooled students residing within the boundaries of the Edmonds School District. Awards of excellence are proudly sponsored by the Port of Edmonds.

 

Student Art Participation
Artwork is selected through two different procedures, School Select and Open Class.

School Select – Determined by student population, each participating school is given an allotment of pieces they may display. It is the school’s choice as to how they decide what pieces to submit.
Open Class Select – K-12 student artists who do not have the School Select option, or did not qualify through the School Select program, are invited to submit art for consideration through Open Class Selection. Click on the INSTRUCTIONS button at the bottom of this page for complete instructions.

Awards
Awards of excellence will be awarded to outstanding artwork selected by two professional artist jurors. In addition, one piece of artwork will be selected to be the 2016 Edmonds Arts Festival Student Art Poster. This art piece is selected by the Festival Student Art Directors and will be displayed and sold during the event. This honor will also be awarded with $150 cash prize. The Edmonds School District Public Relations Office will select approximately 35 pieces of ESD student artwork to be featured on the 2016-17 District Calendar.
