GUIDELINES FOR ART
Each student may enter one piece of art no larger than 36″ by 36″ (including frame). Safety is our first priority and we cannot accept any art with sharp or protruding objects. Each piece of art should have the artist’s name on the back. Work must be dry. Mounting is recommended, not required. Work that does not meet these basic guidelines may be refused by the Art League. All entries must be the original work of the students.
ART DROP OFF
Bring art to Attea Middle School between 8:30-10:30 a.m. on Saturday, February 23. Be sure you have pre-registered. Be sure the work is labeled with the artist’s name and is suitable for display. Artwork must be picked up no later than 3:30 p.m.
The fair opens to the public at 12:30 p.m. All artists are encouraged to attend the fair. Prizes will be awarded at 2:30 p.m. Ribbons and awards will be given in each grade, plus Best in Show and the People’s Choice Award. Artist’s names will appear in the program. Each artist receives a certificate of participation, a chance to show their work on television (GVTV may cover the event), and the opportunity to view the work of their fellow artists. The winner of the Youth Art Fair is invited to participate in Glenview’s Summer Art Fair in July 27 and 28, 2019.
