STUDENT ART OPPORTUNITIES
We have many opportunities throughout the school year for students to showcase their artwork at the Museum!
Our two annual events are the Student Art Exhibition in the Spring and our SpaceXplore rocket design competition on Astronomy day in April.
Other opportunities come up throughout the year, so please keep in touch to see what other exciting shows or contests are available.
HOLIDAYS AROUND THE WORLD STUDENT ART EXHIBITION
Entries accepted starting November 2019. How do you celebrate the winter holidays in your home? How do cultures around the world celebrate winter holidays? Students will use their creativity and artistic eye to explore and express various traditions through a variety of two-dimensional and three-dimensional works of art. This exhibition will be on display in the Turner Memorial Art Museum during our popular Christmas at the Mansion season of events.
