Announcing Budding Artist Award Winners

As part of our commitment to bring art education into the community, a Budding Artist Competition is integrated into the show within a 10’x20’ area. Sponsored by Institute for the Arts & Education, students in grades 6-12 or ages 9-19 were encouraged to enter his/her original and personally handmade art that was publicly displayed in the art show the entire weekend.

There was $250 in Budding Artist Awards as students are exposed to the rules and entrepreneurship opportunity of doing something they love for a living – creating their art. The program brings families to the art show and exposes them to great art. Students are encouraged to speak with the professional artists in the show and ask them what inspires him/her.

City of Boca Raton Council Members Andrea Levine O’Rourke and Robert Weinroth were part of the Budding Artists Awards Presentation held on Sunday, January 28 at 3pm. Special recognition was given to local art teachers including Hope Campbell and Shelley Weiss of North Broward Preparatory School, Jennifer Schultz of Grandview Preparatory School, and Heather Schumulian of Hebrew Academy School in Margate who entered their students into this art-education program.

Participating artist in the show, Mixed Media Artist Zaki of Antwerp, Belgium was the Budding Artist Judge. Similar to the judging of the professional artist awards, the budding artists were judged based on originality, technique, and execution. Zaki provided an explanation as to why each student won his/her prize which provided an educational learning experience about art.
