For the first time within the ARC Salon, we have hosted an independent side-competition for realist high-school artwork (students of 14 to 19 years of age). Through the work of The Da Vinci Initiative, atelier-style schools that have young artist programs, and high school teachers with a passion for skill-based art education, the ARC Salon seeks to acknowledge and encourage the growing skills of these young artists by expanding the ARC Salon to recognize their work.
These works by our talented youth did not compete in the main categories of the ARC Salon, but in a separate division specifically for young students. In this year's ARC Salon, we would like to recognize 21 works along with their teachers and schools for their outstanding accomplishment in the visual arts.
