About Arts Ambassadors

Since 2007, the Arts Ambassadors Exhibit & Reception has been held every spring (with the exception of 2021) at the Art Gallery at the Orinda Library. Curated by Lamorinda public school visual arts teachers in partnership with Lamorinda Arts Council, the exhibit highlights a collection of student art work from K-8th grade students attending Lamorinda elementary and middle schools.

The exhibit is a wonderful way to provide the public an overview of our public school visual arts programs and to promote the value of including arts education as a part of the general curriculum. It's also an exciting and special opportunity for the students and their families to share their artistry in a professional gallery.

Lamorinda Arts Council supports this event by donating and facilitating use of the Art Gallery at the Orinda Library, which we curate on a monthly basis.


High School Visual Arts Competition

The 2022 exhibit will be on display in the Art Gallery at the Orinda Library March 1st - March 31st, 2022.
The Artist & Awards Reception will take place on Thursday, March 10th from 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm.

This annual event showcases and acknowledges art in four categories: 2D, 3D, Photography, and the Lamorinda Arts Alliance Digital Art category.  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, and an online public exhibit of entries in the Art Gallery at the Orinda Library and on the Lamorinda Arts Council website.
