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?

You may indeed sell your artwork. It is your responsibility as the artist to set a price, contact the buyer and complete the sale in a timely manner. 

Event volunteers are not able to coordinate a sale on your behalf.

How many pieces may I submit?

Up to three (3) pieces may be entered by one artist.

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