LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (May 18, 2013) - The Arkansas Art Educators State Youth Art Show 2013 is currently on display for visitors at the
Butler Center Galleries in the River Market area of Little Rock.
Each year throughout the regions of the state, members of the Arkansas Art Educators are asked to submit exemplary pieces of artwork created by Kindergarten through high school students in their classrooms.
A variety of two-dimensional projects ranging from painting, drawing, printmaking, collage, mixed media and computer generated work are judged.
Over 700 pieces of artwork are submitted for consideration. A single piece of artwork from each grade level is selected from each region to represent that area of the state. Judged by art teachers and professional artists, the quality of work selected represents the breadth of learning taking place in art classrooms throughout the state.
The award-winning art pieces will be at the Butler Center from now until July 17.
The Arkansas Art Educators is a made up of art teachers from all over the state who work with the Arkansas Department of Education to provide teachers with high quality in-service training and to promote student art in the state. The AAE State Youth Art Show 2013 exhibition is a partnership between the Arkansas Art Educators and the Arkansas Department of Education.
