2023 Student Art Showcase Theme: "I Am In Full Bloom"
The National Cherry Blossom Festival is happy to announce an exciting opportunity to showcase student arts in DC! The National Cherry Blossom Festival with support from DC Collaborative jointly invite grades K-12 students from DC public, public charter, and Japanese schools to participate in the annual National Cherry Blossom Festival Student Art Showcase by submitting an artwork entry that depicts the theme “This Is How I Bloom”, which encourages the student artist to look inward and show what makes them feel like they are in full bloom, just as the blossoms reach their most bright and vibrant during their peak bloom.
We are thrilled to share that ALL students who submit artwork and a completed waiver form will have their artwork displayed via an online gallery. We will be hosting a Virtual Gallery Opening on March 28th, 2023. As part of the online gallery, viewers are able to vote on a “People’s Choice” winner for each age category. The voting will close on April 15, 2023. We hope this will bring some excitement and incentive to your students to proudly share and showcase their work.
The online gallery will remain open for viewing from March 28th to April 17th, 2023!In a grand culmination of this program, we also hope to invite students to join us in person at Petalpalooza on April 15, 2023 to view selected artworks on display as part of our Petalpalooza Art Walk! We will also be handing out bottles of Corner Water with 5 selected artworks on the bottle! All artwork will be exhibited on the National Cherry Blossom Festival website as part of a virtual art gallery.
Entries for the 2023 Student Art Showcase are now closed.
Should you have concerns or inquiries, please reach out to me directly at email@example.com– I am happy to assist! We are looking forward to celebrating and showcasing the creativity of your students!
