Young Artists' Conference - May 4, 2022

The Young Artist’s Conference is an annual event for aspiring artists in elementary school to showcase their artwork and take part in a series of workshops.  SD73 has offered this unique opportunity to students since 1987.   

Each year over 120 students from grades 4 through 7 are selected to participate in the Young Artists’ Conference.  Each school has a selection committee which reviews a variety of 2-dimensional artwork submitted by students.  The selection committee chooses between two and six students (depending on school enrollment numbers) to represent their school at the Young Artists’ Conference.
