For Student Artists, Teachers, and Mentors

The 2019 Heard Museum Guild American Indian Student Art Show & Sale will be held March 29-April 1, 2019.

Here is the list of 2018 Award winners.

Dear Artists, Teachers, and Mentors:

American Indian students in grades 7–12 are invited to submit their original artwork to the Student Art Show and Sale.  This event provides the opportunity for students to display their art in the Heard Museum, have their art judged by a professional panel, compete for ribbon and cash awards, and sell their artwork.

The pages in this section of our website contain information to assist you in preparing and submitting entries for the Show.  Notice the list of pages in the “Student & Teacher Quick Links” on the right side of this page. Please review the pages in their entirety.

Pay special attention to these issues:

  • Each piece of art needs to be reasonably priced by the student. This is a show & sale.  Students must be willing to sell their entries.
  • Size must be considered.  The panels on which we hang the art are about 30 inches wide.  Two-dimensional work must fit in this space.
  • All pieces will be available for sale until the Show closes April 1, 2019.
  • Teachers’ grant requests must be included with students’ art and must be clear and specific about what the requested funds will be used for.  Stating “art supplies” is not specific enough for grant requests.

There will be a special Master Artist Workshop for artists on Friday, March 29, 2019.  See the 2019 Schedule page for details.

The Show and Silent Auction begin at 5:30 pm in Monte Vista on Friday, March 29, 2019.  We would like you to join us at the Museum on this important day and evening.  We will be happy to arrange free tours of the Museum for you on Friday, Saturday, or Sunday. Please notify us a week in advance so we can arrange guides.
