STEP TWO:

ARTIST STATEMENT

In your artist statement, tell us about your work and what it means to you. ​How closely the piece relates to the theme, based on your artwork AND your artist statement is 50% of the score. Here are a few things to think about when creating your artist statement:

  • How does your work relate to the theme?

  • What is your personal connection to the theme?

  • What did you use to create your work (e.g. supplies, technology, instrumentation, props, etc.)?

  • What/Who was your inspiration?

Follow your school's PTA deadlines and instructions on how to enter. For inspiration visit the national award-winning Reflections Art Gallery.
