Youth Art FAQ

Can I submit artwork even if I don't qualify to win the Lone Star Artist Award?

Absolutely! You may also win awards and recognition wherever your talent lies, whether it be 3D art, pottery, pen & ink, oil, or watercolor. Artwork of any size or medium is acceptable for the Youth Art in the Square exhibit.

Can I sell my art at the festival?

Yes, but know that it is totally your responsibility as the artist to set a price and you must contact the  buyer in a timely manner to complete the sale following the festival.  Event volunteers will not be able to coordinate a sale on your behalf.

How many pieces can I submit to the show?

Up to three pieces may be entered by one artist.

Do I have to volunteer for the festival if I submit artwork?

Yes, volunteers are necessary to hold this art festival. Many two-hour shifts are available to suit your schedule.  Online signup will be available on this web site beginning in March. 

Can I submit artwork if I have participated in previous years?

Yes.  We also accept works submitted for other contests outside of this event.  

When will I know if my artwork has been accepted?

We will publish a list of accepted youth artists and artwork titles on this web site on April 20, 2018 by 5 p.m. We will announce the availability of this list on our Facebook page as well.

How will I know if my artwork has been selected to win an award?

Award ribbons will be attached to artwork by 12:00 p.m. on Saturday the 28th. All finalists will receive an award at the presentation on Sunday at 2 pm.
