2023 Art Competition

Black History Month Student Art Show brings talent from industry professionals and students (K-12), together!

2023 Art Competition


December 3, 2022

2023 Art Competition: ASHE Arts & STEM has teamed with Pulse Arts, Teach One Reach One and The Creative House to create a juried K-12 Student Art Exhibition & reception for Black History Month. As funding for art in schools has been decimated over the years, these 4 organizations are working to bridge the gap and raise needed funding for programs that reach BIPOC youth in inner city public schools, continuation schools and foster care youth. A well rounded education requires access to art training. We are doing our part to make it happen.

Categories for this event include:. Painting, Sculpture, photography and, in our digital categories: film, dance, music, and poetry/spoken word. Jurists include professionals in each genre of art listed. Application for the Student Art Exhibition can be found here: https://bit.ly/3H1IBmC. Student K-12 are invited to apply!

This 2-day event will take place at:
The Creative House (122 N. Market St., Inglewood)
