The San Diego County Art Education Association is proud to announce TWO UPCOMING STUDENT ART EXHIBITIONS as well as the call for nominations for the 2014 ARTISSIMO AWARDS of Excellence in Art Education. Please submit your student’s best work to spotlight their achievements and highlight the work you do in your classrooms! 

These juried, standards based exhibitions of student art are one of the best ways that we, as teachers, can model the importance of art education to students, parents, administrators and the community. Exhibiting your students’ art work validates and adds real meaning to why we teach art in our schools.  This year also marks the first year that CASH AWARDS will be given at the 2014 Groff Exhibition!
