Calling all artists ages 6 to 17! The city of Chandler Community Center is set to transform into an energetic gallery featuring artwork from local youth at the Youth and Teen Art Show. Submissions are being accepted through March 11.
From dynamic sculptures to multimedia illustrations to crocheted creations, the Chandler Youth and Teen Art Show invites young artists to share their creativity in a public forum.
“We are thrilled to offer a platform for the Chandler youth community to showcase their vibrant creativity,” says Recreation Coordinator Kennedy Terrill. “The Youth and Teen Art Show is a celebration of the diverse talent that enriches our community. It’s a wonderful opportunity for local youth to express and share their unique gifts with fellow community members, fostering a sense of connection.”
There is no cost to enter, and artists can submit up to three pieces. All accepted submissions will be featured in the Youth and Teen Art Show at the Chandler Community Center, open to the public March 22 through April 5. There will be a grand opening event, open to the public on March 22 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. In addition to viewing the artwork from talented Chandler artists, guests can also enjoy music from a Chandler teen band, participate in the voting panel, and kids can create an art project of their own.
Prizes will be awarded to first place in each category, which will be determined after the submission deadline of March 11, to ensure fair and accurate judging.
The Chandler Community Center is located at 125 E. Commonwealth Ave. For more information, visit chandleraz.gov/news-center/youth-and-teen-art-show-returns-chandler-community-center.
