Art is selected by the art teachers during the year, but students are allowed to enter works on their own as well. “If you’re home-schooling, or not in an art class, we still are interested in your work,” Warstler said.
Students may submit up to three works in any media. A submission form is available at the Arts Center or online at bonifasarts.org.
