A Statewide Assessment for Visual Art Students
The purpose of the program is to serve as a statewide assessment for visual art and promote the achievements of students enrolled in visual art classes throughout Florida.
The opening date for the 2021 K-12 Student Art Assessment & Virtual Exhibition is forthcoming. Stay tuned for the announcement of the submissions start date for accepting student artworks. The submissions deadline will be Monday, March 15, 2021.
Adjudication will take place in March, and results will be sent out in April. The judging process is conducted virtually by a minimum of three judges who have received FAEA training in scoring artworks for exhibition. The jurors work independently of each other. All entries are adjudicated "blind" by the judges (artist name, school, and district are not visible to the judges).
Selection criteria is based on these 4-point rubrics:
Entries that receive an "Award of Excellence with Distinction" are featured in a virtual exhibition that highlights all artworks awarded with a perfect score. Entries who received an "Award of Excellence" or an "Award of Excellence with Distinction" have their artwork in their school division's virtual exhibition (Elementary, Middle School, High School).
The 2021 K-12 Student Art Assessment & Virtual Exhibition prize structure is currently being developed. More information will be released soon.
Thank you to all of the students, teachers, and schools that participated this year. Letters with students' scores and certificates will be emailed to each teacher in May.
Virtual exhibitions of the artworks that received an "Award of Excellence" or an "Award of Excellence with Distinction" are now available. The virtual gallery will be updated regularly when release forms and payments are submitted.
Students that received an "Award of Excellence with Distinction" for a perfect score will be on display at the 2020 FAEA Conference in Ponte Vedra Beach on November 5-8.
