“The Art Supervisors Association (ASA) is honored to provide a venue that gives our community the opportunity to appreciate the creativity, imagination, and skills produced by a fundamental, innovative and vibrant K-12 sequential visual arts education,” said Donna Manning, ASA co-executive exhibit director and Seaford School District art teacher.
Entries are selected by art educators and are limited to a maximum of three pieces of artwork from each teacher. All of the pieces are produced in alignment with the New York State Learning Standards for the Visual Arts.
Another way the ASA nurtures young artists is by offering scholarships to graduating seniors.
