ArtFields Jr. Youth Art Competition & Programs in Lake City

From the website:

Designed for students from 5K through 12th grade, ArtFields Jr. is an array of year-round art programs, field trips, and a statewide youth art competition that provide creative fine arts outlets for underserved children and teens in Lake City and surrounding areas.

ArtFields Jr. gives children from Lake City and the surrounding areas — from as young as kindergarten to high school — the chance to engage in and be nurtured by art — by color and form and things made by hand, by artists and teachers and art lovers. Through our programs, kids do things they’ve often never done before, like see live artistic performances and art exhibitions, spend time talking with real artists, and learn and deepen their skills with studio art instruction.

ARTFIELDS JR. ART COMPETITION

The ArtFields Jr. Art Competition is open to South Carolina students in grades 1 through 12. All artwork submitted is considered by our review panel. Select pieces will be displayed during the month of April and final judging takes place during ArtFields. Winners will be notified by phone or email and officially announced during the Awards Ceremony at the Bean Market in May. There is a February deadline.

Schools and families are encouraged to attend the awards ceremony to support their student artists and developing artists throughout the community.
