WNC Regional Scholastic Art Awards

The Museum, with the assistance of its volunteer docents and support from the Asheville Area Section of the American Institute of Architects, is proud to be a regional affiliate partner sponsoring the WNC Regional Scholastic Art Awards each year. Students in grades 7–12 from all across Western North Carolina  are invited to submit work for this special juried competition. The Museum works with the Alliance for Young Artists & Writers to facilitate regional judging of student artwork and to recognize our community’s burgeoning artistic talent.

In early spring each year, award winners are featured in an exhibition and are honored at a ceremony. Regional Gold Key recipients’ work is sent to the national Scholastic Art & Writing Awards competition hosted by the Alliance for Young Artists & Writers.

For more information on the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards, visit artandwriting.org; email Susan Hendley, school & family programs manager; or call 828.253.3227 x133.
