Any Pre-K through 12th grade student. To be eligible to have work included in the 2022-23 Shoreline School District calendar, students must currently attend a Shoreline School District school (including the Home Education Exchange and Edwin Pratt Early Learning Center).
2-D and 3-D works are accepted. Students may submit up to 2 works of art, but only 1 work of art per category.

HOW TO APPLY:
Parents, please submit an online application for your student(s) by the deadline above. See the "Photographing Your Work" section below for information about submitting photographs.
Free. There is a $5 suggested donation to ShoreLake Arts in the online application form to help offset the cost of producing the Youth Art Show.
Artwork will be viewable at this web page from June 20 through July 31, 2022.
Photographing Your Work
Most smart phone can take very high quality photographs. If you have a DSLR camera, feel free to use it, but it is probably not necessary.
Pay attention to lighting. This is very important. Most indoor lighting setups will not be bright enough, or they will cast shadows on your artwork. Consider taking your artwork outside to photograph it (weather pending). Even on slightly overcast days, the sun is a great source of bright, indirect light.
Place your artwork on a neutral background. Let the colors of your artwork pop by avoiding color in the background.
Take more photos than you need. Give yourself the luxury of looking through photos to choose the best one.
Please submit photographs as .jpg, .jpeg, .png, or .tiff files. By default, iPhones save photos as .heic files. If you have a Mac, you can use Preview to export photos as .jpeg files. There are also plenty of free online services for changing photo file types.
