ATLANTA HIGH SCHOOL ART EXHIBITION

The Atlanta High School Art Exhibition (AHSAE) offers young artists an opportunity to compete, exhibit their work and earn prizes like scholarships and art supplies. This “must see” festival event is a juried competition that will have the top 26 works on display and a looping video of the other 169 top works playing on a large screen video. Guests will also have a chance to bid on silent auction items donated by local artists, teachers and friends of the AHSAE program.

Established in the early 1970s, the AHSAE recognizes and encourages the fine quality of art created by the area’s high school students. High school art students from more than 70 schools and 12 regional Atlanta counties submit work for the competition, which offers awards and fills a growing gap in creative opportunities for youth.

Be sure to visit the Atlanta High School Art Exhibition in the Community Center near the 12th Street Entrance to get a look at the variety and breadth of Atlanta’s young artistic talent. You can even purchase printed copies of your favorite pieces!
