Arts Across Arkansas

Jan. 5 is the deadline for Arkansas teachers to nominate their students to enter a preliminary work for submission for Arts Across Arkansas, an Arkansas Arts Council pilot program for high school students to “encourage, enhance, and expand students’ original thoughts, processes, personal experiences and artistic abilities.”

Students can submit entries in one or more of these categories: music composition, dance choreography, literary arts, visual arts, photography and film. A panel of teaching artists from the Arts Council’s Arts in Education Roster will select 5-10 finalists in each category. A roster artist will, virtually, or in person, mentor each finalist in their creative process; students may change, edit or redo their work before submitting it for the state finals, March 30, at which a cash prize will be awarded.
