2023 Pick up Youth Art entries Monday 12th June 10am-12noon

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 Youth Art competition was originally held for the students of Pacific Palms Public School during the main Art Festival Exhibition & Sale to inspire future artists. Over the years the Youth Art competition grew to include the local high school and developed it's own exhibition space on the weekend before the main Exhibition & Sale. The last few years have proved an overwhelming success with many schools from across the region taking part. Last 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.   Download an Entry Pack for details.
