 Budding Artist Winners:

 

The Boca Raton Fine Art Show™ is sponsored by Hot Works, LLC, a professionally produced fine art fair with a national standing and reputation. The Institute for the Arts & Education, Inc. is the associated 501(c)3 non-profit organization which focuses on visual arts, diversity, fostering art education among young students, and community enrichment.

 

 

 

 

Patty Narozny, Show Director tells us, “As part of our commitment to bring art education into the community, the Budding Artist Competition for students in grades 6-12 or ages 9-19 is integrated into the art fair. Sponsored by Institute for the Arts & Education, the competition gives budding, young artists a golden opportunity to begin learning the rules of being part of a professional art show and exhibition. It exposed young artists to the opportunity of creating his or her art for a living – doing something he/she loves to do, and, most importantly, how to do it. The young artists were encouraged to speak with the professional artists in the show, to ask them questions about participating in art shows as a career”.

 

 

 

This year’s Budding Artist contest included 40 applications from 11 area schools. There were $250 in cash awards provided to four young winners, along with a beautiful, colorful two-foot-long ribbon ( the same, largest-size-available gorgeous ribbon that the Professional Artist award winners receive). Painter, Zaki Knapen was the Budding Artist judge; criteria for judging art was based on technique/execution and originality, which is similar to the criteria for the judging of the professional artist awards. Zaki explained why he chose the winners, and provided professional consultation to the Budding Artists who inquired.

 

 

The four winners were as follows:
