Institute for the Arts & Education is the 501c3 non-profit arm which focuses on visual arts, cultural diversity, community enrichment, and fostering art education amongst youth.
 
As part of our commitment to include art education in the community, a Budding Artist competition is integrated within the event. Young artists in grades 6-12 or ages 9-19 are invited to apply with their original and personally handmade art. This competition gives budding, young artists a golden opportunity to begin learning the rules of being part of a professional art show and exhibition.

The Budding Artist competition is provided with a premium location within the show to display all of the youth art entries. As art programs are being dramatically cut and eliminated in schools nationwide, the need for such initiatives is made even more relevant.

Criteria for judging the youth art is technique/execution and originality, which is similar for judging of the professional artist awards. Photographs of the winners and other youth art participants will be taken.
