Budding Artists Art Competition:As part of our commitment to include art education in the Boca Raton Fine Art Show™ and the Palm Beach County community as a whole, a budding artists art competition for grades 6th-12th or ages 9-19 is integrated into the event and provided a prime space within the show. This program is sponsored by the Institute for the Arts & Education, the associated 501-c3 nonprofit organization; there is $250 in Budding Artists awards. Young artists are encouraged to create their original and personally handmade art. Art programs are being dramatically cut back and eliminated in schools nationwide, thereby further underscoring the need for such initiatives. Not only is all the art work publicly displayed, the program helps teach budding, young artists the rules and requirements of being part of a professionally run art show and exhibition. The students are encouraged to speak with the professional artists in the show, and to ask them questions about participating in art shows as a career. The show provides these students with an unmatched learning experience. The program was a huge success in the past. The deadline to apply is December 31, 2013. There is a $3 entry fee for the Budding Artists Art Competition, and the maximum is two entries per student.
Live Entertainment: Various rhythmic musicians perform throughout the weekend for your listening pleasure!
