Open Call to Artists

Every year WWA is excited to present the work of your talented Teaching Artists and students in our Faculty and Student Art Show. This is a great opportunity to showcase what has been created during the past year and all our students and teachers will get at least 1 piece of art in the show. We will also be recognizing the achievements of all Certificate of Fine Arts (CiFA) students, selecting one student’s work to become part of our permanent collection.

Students may submit 3 works of art that were created in a class or workshop at WWA during the Fall, Winter, or Spring sessions of the 2023-2024 class year or Summer 2023 camps. We encourage all art forms including drawing, painting, sculpture, poetry, photographs, digital and animation files. There is no cost for submission. Teaching artists may submit 2 works of art.
