Sawtooth Art Slam

Sawtooth School for Visual Art (SSVA) has created an exciting opportunity for high school artists!
We are hosting a visual art competition -“Sawtooth Art Slam” – which allows students in Summer Art Immersion classes to enter the work they make during the week. Participants will be featured in an online gallery and first place winners will have photographs of their artwork on display at SSVA June through August. All top winners will be entered in an overall chance to win a scholarship toward any Sawtooth class. Good thru August 2018.
