Students Benefit
The Annual Scholastic Art Show will showcase the variety of materials, methods and subjects that students approach in their art classes. The 2016 Scholastic Art Show featured a variety of digital and traditional media, including photography, videos, clothing designs, ceramics, jewelry, and a Skittles mosaic. Participating high schools include: Avon, Dansville, Genesee Country Christian School, Geneseo, Honeoye Falls-Lima, Lima Christian, Livonia, Mount Morris, Keshequa, Pavilion, Wayland-Cohocton and York Schools.

Cultivating Student Artists
Livingston Arts hosts the Scholastic Art Show to support aspiring artists. The event prepares students to participate in juried exhibits. Students receive hands-on experience in expressing a theme across multiple media, promoting their work and developing a portfolio at the high school level. “The caliber and variety of work is a credit to our art teachers across the Genesee Valley,” says Program Director Lin Callahan. “The Scholastic Art Show always has an amazing balance, featuring digital and traditional media, thoughtful and whimsical works. Our art teachers draw out the individuality of each of our student artists.”
