Sarasota’s most recognizable and prestigious arts show and competition features more than 200 submissions from talented high school student artists annually. Student artists are encouraged to submit their art work for the chance to compete for awards and scholarships. Student art work – including paintings, drawings, photography, 3D art, sculpture and graphic art – is displayed at a public exhibit at Ringling College of Art + Design. The Top 25 artworks are selected by a panel of distinguished judges and auctioned off at the Education Foundation’s signature fundraiser, The Bash: An Evening of Excellence Anew. CreateSRQ is a multi-faceted initiative created to elevate arts education and has become the area’s preeminent high school arts competition and exhibit.
