A Look at Palm Beach County: Young Masters Virtual Art Auction

Young Art Masters Auction showcases the talents of local student artists while raising funds for the art programs that nurture those talents.  Wellington residents Jeremy and Margaret Jacobs provided supplies to four area public high schools, enabling the students to create pieces for a virtual auction. The participating schools are: Wellington High School, Palm Beach Central High School, Royal Palm Beach High School, and Seminole Ridge Community High School.  Each piece interprets the theme “Palm Beach County – through the eyes of young artists.”  The Rickie Report shares a sneak peak at some of the entries plus all the information you need to make your bid!  This auction runs through April 10th.
