Club members spend many months working hard to create art pieces for the Local Fine Arts Exhibit held at the Everett Mall. Judges from around the county view the displayed art before the event is opened to the public and determine if the piece qualifies to go onto the regional exhibit. The pieces are rated within 4 age groups and 10 categories such as watercolor, sculpture and painting. This year, we had 5 pieces from each Club throughout Snohomish County and Island Counties. The first place winners chosen based on the skill and artistic sensibility expressed in the artwork will go on to the regional exhibit.
The winning pieces will go onto the 2013 Pacific National Fine Arts Regional Fine Arts Judging and Exhibit in May at the Boys & Girls Club of Bellevue. Of these pieces, 37 will be chosen pieces to go on to the Boys and Girls Clubs of America’s National Headquarters in Atlanta for the National Fine Arts Judging and Exhibit where the 37 best pieces will be chosen. The 37 national winners, one per age group and category, will have their art on display at special events throughout the year. The winning artists will also receive engraved plaques and letters of congratulations from Boys & Girls Club America president Jim Clark and regional finalists will receive a certificate of participation.
The Fine Arts Program, which encourages artistic expression, is designed to enable Club members ages 6-18 to develop their creativity and cultural awareness through visual arts. Club members create a variety of art pieces are divided into 10 different categories including monochromatic drawing, multicolored drawing, pastel, watercolor, oil/acrylic, print making, mixed media, collage, sculpture and a group project. The Fine Arts Exhibit allows Club members to showcase their talents to the community.
Congratulations to all our young artists!
