Going For Gold Art Show

“Going for Gold” will be our next art show aimed at inspiring the creation of works of art that are excellent enough conceptually and technically to be considered for both regional and national Scholastic Gold Award distinction.

Scholastic Judging Criteria (Taken directly from their website):

• Originality: Work that breaks from convention, blurs the boundaries between genres, and challenges notions of how a particular concept or emotion can be

•Technical Skill: Work that uses technique to advance an original perspective or a personal vision or voice, and show skills being utilized to create something unique, powerful, and innovative.

Personal Vision or Voice: Work with an authentic and unique point of view and style.

1. Size
– No minimum – but we are encouraging work to be at least 18×24.
– Maximum – open (see teacher if you have really large ideas)
