The goal of the Youth Art Show is to provide increased awareness of the artistic talents of the youth of the coastal area by promoting the exhibition of art and to make available the opportunity to participate in the show.
1. School children between the ages of 6 and 18 years who are residents of Berkeley, Charleston, Dorchester Counties and surrounding areas who are presently enrolled in elementary, middle, or high school. *If older than age 18 years, the artist must have completed the work while in school within the past twelve (12) months. A limited number of entry packets are available at the fair office for homeschool students who would like to submit work. Due to limited space we are not able, at this time, to accept work from private studios.
2. Each eligible school in the area receives a limited number of registration tickets. It is the responsibility of the art teacher at each school to make the professional decision as to which pieces of artwork will receive a ticket and thus be submitted for entry into the Fair.
3. No artwork will be accepted without the entry form. (NOTE: Entry forms must be attached according to the instructions in the current rules). Entry forms are not available online.
4. NO PHOTOGRAPHY ENTRIES WILL BE ACCEPTED FOR THIS SHOW! Mixed-media artworks containing photography elements will be accepted, but works that are only photography must be submitted to the fair’s Photography Show, under that show’s rules, which vary from the rules and entry dates of the Youth Art Show. The Youth Art Show cannot and will not transfer these entries to the Photography Show.
