Youth Art Focus
January 23 -
The Pensacola Museum of Art, in partnership with the Escambia County School System, is proud to present the 67th annual Youth Art Focus exhibition highlighting the best work from art students and educators from Escambia County Schools. Since our first year in 1954, Youth Art Focus has created an opportunity to expose students to the fine art world in a professional museum environment while giving the public a chance to experience and appreciate the accomplishments of Escambia County’s Fine Art Education Programs.
The resources below offer a virtual opportunity for students and teachers to engage with the museum exhibitions on view, including a virtual tour led by museum curators, photographs of each school’s installation in the space, and an educators resource packet with exhibition synopses, related terminology, and classroom activities for students.
Free Museum Admission: Each teacher or featured artist plus one guest or chaperone.
There are over 700 works in the exhibition each year. Both Middle and High school student works are juried and winners are selected for first, second and third in five different media categories, as well as a best in show, and several outstanding artistic achievements. Educator works are also juried and winners are selected for first, second and third, as well as best in show.
