The Youth Art Exhibition is held annually at the beginning of June, in conjunction with Pacific Palms Art Festival, and continues to attract more entries each year.
The competition, which was launched to inspire future artists, has proved an overwhelming success with many schools from across the region taking part. This year we had 251 entries by 162 artists from 12 of our local schools!
The exhibition is open to 5 - 16 year olds across six sections; Oil and Acryclic on board or canvas, Watercolour/Pastels, Mixed Medium, Photography, Pen/Pencil/Ink and Aboriginal Art.
