Hotworks Boca Raton Fine Art Show Budding Artists Winner, 2015

This year’s Budding Artist contest included 47 entries from 16 area schools; all entries were publicly displayed under the “Budding Artist” tent. It exposed young artists to the opportunity of creating his/her art for a living – doing something he/she loves to do, and, most importantly, how to do it. The competition gave budding artists a golden opportunity to begin learning the rules of being part of a professional art show and exhibition.

There were $250 in cash awards provided to four young winners, along with a beautiful, colorful two-foot-long ribbon. Criteria for judging the youth art were based on technique/execution and originality, which is similar to the criteria for the judging of the professional artist awards.

Artist Michael Braun, Digital, gave a short presentation about transforming his artwork from fiber to digital art. He had something in common with one of the Budding Artists, Dominic Mattioli of Monarch High School, who entered a painting of Jimi Hendrix. Michael designed Jimi Hendrix’ pants in his famous on-stage photo and made clothes for other musical artists including Sonny & Cher, Greg Allman, and Sly of Sly & the Family Stone.

 

 

The artwork made by the Budding Artists was so compelling, original and well done that patrons purchased some of the student’s art.  For the budding artists who did not win a prize, it is important that they were communicated that even the best artists do not get accepted into the best art shows all the time; that art is subjective, and if this is something they love to do, they should not give up, but to also congratulate the winners.

 

 

The Boca Raton Fine Art Show™ provided these students with an unmatched learning experience, and exposed families to artwork that they would not have otherwise seen. Young artists were encouraged to speak with the artists in the show – all professionals — and to ask them questions about participating in art shows as a career.
