CA/HI Art Festivals

The ACSI Art Festival brings together the work of student artists who have placed at their school's own art festival. Each exhibit should demonstrate a student's ability in applying their God-given skill in using appropriate techniques for their chosen medium.

All artwork that has been done during the current school year is eligible. All entries must be the original work of the student; no kit projects. The festival chairperson for each site will determine the number of student entries per school, depending on the size of the event (Plan A or Plan B). Categories include painting, drawing, printmaking, graphic arts/ calligraphy, sculpture, photography, and crafts.

All students receive a merit award ribbon according to the quality of work and not in competition with the other exhibits. First, Second, and Third places are awarded rosettes per grade level. In addition, a Theme Award rosette is also presented in each grade level. (The festival theme is announced by each chairperson and varies from festival to festival.) The Best of Show rosettes (4) are presented to the most outstanding entries; one for grades K–2, one for grades 3–5, one for grades 6–8, and one for grades 9–12.


School Fee: $65 by October 31 ($85 thereafter).

Student Participation Fee: $8 per student per entry if submitted by the Chairperson's deadline ($13 thereafter).
