Teachers have a choice between two options for submitting student artwork for consideration in the art exhibit at Arts Alive! 2018. Each pathway for submitting student artwork will use the same set of criteria.
The information on this page is only for submissions directly to the WV Department of Education.
If you are interested in submitting via the Youth Arts Month Exhibit instead, please visit http://www.wvaea.com/ for more information. All art work for the WVAEA State Youth Art Month exhibit must be postmarked by February 12, 2018.
2-D Submissions: Digital submissions of 2-D artwork should be matted and ready for display. As a general guideline, 2-D submissions should aim to be no larger than 24" x 36." Larger works, however, will be considered.
3-D Submissions: As a general guideline, pieces should be no heavier than 40 lbs. and should be portable enough for one person to handle. Larger, heavier works, however, will be considered. If art work is accepted, the teacher, student, or county representative must: a) accept sole responsibility for transporting the piece to and from the Clay Center on the day of Arts Alive!; b) meet all timelines and c) honor Arts Alive! exhibit procedures and protocol.
All digital submissions to the WVDE must be received by February 23, 2018.
If you have questions about VISUAL ART submissions (through either WVDE or YAM), please contact Katy Crim firstname.lastname@example.org.
By submitting this form, I affirm that the person(s) listed on the form is/are a student(s) in a West Virginia school.
