The Possibilities Are Endless with Art
The K12 National Art Competition is now closed. This year we welcomed artwork from students in grades K–12 for a chance to showcase their talents on a national stage. Possible mediums included paintings, drawings, collages, prints, or a combination.

Prizes include Microsoft Surface tablets, virtual art lessons, and in-person experiences at Savannah College of Art and Design! RSVP below to join us for the reveal of our winners.
