Scholastic Art Awards
The Milwaukee Art Museum has hosted the Scholastic Art Awards – Wisconsin Exhibition since 1976. The Scholastic Art Awards offers early recognition of creative teenagers by local and national professionals in the arts and exhibition opportunities for regional and national audiences; and scholarships for graduating seniors who present portfolios of art.
Who Participates?Young artists residing in Wisconsin who: are currently enrolled in grades 7–12 during the current school year; attend a public, private, parochial or home-school; have begun their own creative journey and want to grow as creative individuals; want to make connections to their peers and creative organizations; want to develop mastery and explore more opportunities to showcase their work; and believe there is no limit to where their creative journey can take them!
How can I submit to the Scholastic Art Awards – Wisconsin Exhibition?The process begins with students submitting creative works of art to the Wisconsin Regional Affiliate program through an art teacher or other primary teacher if their school does not have an art teacher. Supported by their teachers and other community mentors, students create and submit their best works in any of the following sixteen visual arts categories:
Architecture, Ceramics & Glass, Comic Art, Design, Digital Art, Drawing, Fashion, Film & Animation, Jewelry, Mixed Media, Painting, Photography, Printmaking, Sculpture, Video Games, and Senior Portfolios.
