Judging & Awards:
This juried art exhibit is intended for kids age 3-18. The artwork will be broken up into these 5 age groups: Age 3-5, 6-8, 9-11, 12-14, 15-18. The artwork in each group will be judged on the following; creativity/originality, technique, clarity of theme, and presentation. There will be awards and recognition for each age group. The public will also be invited to vote on which piece of art they believe is the best, to nominate young artists for the People's Choice award!

Did you know…
…there are many benefits to children creating art? Researchers say that creative pursuits help to build connections in the brain to strengthen cognitive reserve, or brain resilience, and subsequently prevent memory loss. Creating artwork can also improve fine motor skills through small, purposeful movements, which may help to prevent pain and stiffness.

This exhibit will be a fun and safe way for us to encourage the creativity within the children of our community. It's during dark times like these, that we must remember both the beautiful and positive benefits art has on the soul. Children come into this world innocent, with a desire to love, learn and to contribute. Together let's encourage their imagination and give them the freedom to express themselves for this year's theme "Creatures of Colorado". Together as a community, we can build the confidence of so many young artists.

Please help us spread the word, by forwarding this information to all local residents, so we can give our young artists the best experience possible!
