New Changes to Visual Arts Category for 2015!

Exciting new changes are coming to Reflections in the Visual Arts category! Starting this fall, 3D artwork will be accepted. 3D Art will include ceramics, sculpture, jewelry, fiber arts, etc. Now students can express their creations in media other than paper. Also, 2D Art will no longer have a thickness restriction. This means that students may use traditional canvas on wood and not worry about having their artwork disqualified if it's over 3/8" in thickness. There are conditions that students must follow, however, so please review all rules carefully. The General Rules and the specific rules for each category are available below.
