We are thrilled to kick off the 20th Annual High School Visual Arts Competition! Registration for 2023 is now OPEN!
The High School Visual Arts Competition showcases and acknowledges art in four categories: 2D, 3D, Photography, and Digital Art. All work is by high school students who live in or attend school in Orinda, Lafayette, or Moraga, including all schools in the Acalanes Union High School District. The competition features cash awards, merit citations, an in-person art exhibit in the gallery as well as an online public exhibit of entries on the Lamorinda Arts Council website.
