2019 Arts and Humanities Commission Young Artists Exhibit

The Rowlett Arts and Humanities Commission invites young artists, Kindergarten through 12th grade (public, private and home-schooled students), to participate in this annual art exhibit. The Commission's goal is to recognize talented young local artists and their art teachers.

The Young Artists Exhibit give children in Kindergarten through 12th grade the positive reinforcement and encouragement they need. For many kids, this kind of event is an important opportunity to display their art work. It helps to validate them as developing artists, and helps parents and community members to be more aware of visual arts programs in our schools. Our goal is to encourage area students to become more active in their communities through the visual arts.

Artwork will be accepted at the City of Rowlett's Annex Building, located at 4004 Main Street, during one of the take-in times:

  • Friday, March 22, 2019 from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm - or-
  • Saturday, March 23, 2019 from 10:00 am to 12 pm

Artwork will be on display from March 25 through April 26, 2019 in the City's Annex Building.
