The Woodlands Arts Council Announces 2019 Student Art Scholarship Competition
THE WOODLANDS, TX – Each year, The Woodlands Arts Council (TWAC) promotes and supports artists of the future through its Student Art Scholarship Competition. Student artists who are active public, private and home-schooled juniors and seniors from the Montgomery County area submit their original works in painting, drawing, mixed media 2D, mixed media 3D, digital art and photography to the competition.
This year, 180 pieces were submitted online, according to Tricia Howard, coordinator of the competition for The Woodlands Arts Council. The diverse student art will be featured in a special exhibition at Market Street on four consecutive Fridays and Saturdays beginning March 15: March 15 & 16, March 22 & 23, March 29 & 30 and April 5 & 6 from 12:00 – 5:00 p.m.
”We invite the public to visit this specially curated exhibit to see the incredible artistic talent put forth by young people in our community,” Howard said. “We look forward to announcing the winners of the competition at a special reception for the students and their families on Sunday, April 6 from 2:00 to 3:00 pm.”
The public is invited to visit the Student Art Scholarship Exhibit at the TWAC offices located at Market Street, 9595 Six Pines Dr., #1060 The Woodlands, TX 77380 (on the corner between Tesla and Chipotle).
A panel of professors, teachers and artists from the greater Houston area will judge each submission and select first, second and third place winners in each category. Each year, TWAC awards approximately $20,000 in scholarships through this competition.
The selected award-winning works, along with honorable mentions, will be on display in the Student Art Scholarship Booth at the 2019 Woodlands Waterway Arts Festival scheduled for April 13 and 14 in Town Green Park.
