Virtual Art Show!

Theme: "What Brings Me Joy..." 

This Way to the

THANK YOU to the student artists who have shared their joy with our community and submitted OVER 400 works of joy-filled art! 

Scoring is currently underway by our partner and prize sponsor the El Dorado Hills Arts Association! We happily received more joyful art to review than we anticipated, so we've extended the original judging deadline by a few days to allow our judges to take their time and enjoy the artwork as they review the art gallery.

The judging window will close on Monday, October 5, 2020, and prize recipients will be announced shortly thereafter!

Every artist will receive a certificate of participation in the art show!  Certificates will be delivered to school to be distributed, and BDLS student certificates will be mailed.

One artist in each grade level will win an art supply prize package! (Included: Small easel, 2 hard canvases, watercolor paint set, watercolor paper pad, acrylic paint set, paint palette, paint brush set, Crayola Twistables "fun-effects" crayons, neon art pencil set, metallic art pencil set, sketch book)

10 Prize packages will be awarded!

Judging will be done by members of our partnering sponsor,

The El Dorado Hills Arts Association

Thank you to all who have donated items to bring us this fun and free community event!
