An Alliance for Young Artists and Writers program, The Scholastic Art Competition is one of the oldest and most prestigious student art competitions in the country. Cheekwood will celebrate its 27th year as a regional affiliate for the program in 2018, a tradition that has become an invaluable part of its history.
The Middle Tennessee Scholastic Art Awards aim to support students’ artistic discoveries and encourage them to seek opportunities to showcase and share their art. In 2017, 1,465 works of art were submitted from 262 area schools, programs and institutions. Next year, Cheekwood is excited to expand its outreach and access efforts by waiving the submission fee for all Title 1 students. The Tennessee Credit Union’s dedicated support over the past 26 years has provided a platform for Cheekwood to continue to grow these efforts and celebrate these emerging artists.
