This annual program provides an opportunity to all regional middle and high school students to exhibit their art work. A coordinated theme is introduced to faculty and students and is to incorporate elements of creative writing, historical events and cultural milestones.
Young adults may submit their works in the hope of receiving awards which include MACK youth memberships, vouchers to Summer Arts Camps, gift certificates and adult instructional classes.
Resident artists participate by directly instructing 7th and 8th grade students twice a week, with the volunteer art instructor, over a full month.
The project extends the current curriculum and applies the theme, giving the students the opportunity to participate according to their interpretation. Awards were placed in three categories; Middle School, High School, and 3-Dimensional.
