Sparking the Arts
Annual event draws a huge crowd.
The 2015 event was held on August 6 at the Wetumpka Civic Center located at 410 South Main Street in Wetumpka. There were more over one hundred entries from 13 participating schools.
It's wonderful to see the “SPARK” in the students eyes as they come up on the stage to accept their awards and then walk around showing off their medals.
Sparking the Arts, an annual student achievement outreach program organized by the Elmore County Art Guild, began in 2010. However, the Guild began holding annual youth achievement programs in 1993. The program is designed to provide encouragement and recognition for local student achievement in the visual arts. Entries will be nominated by representative artists from the Elmore County Art Guild. The artwork will be selected from private schools, public schools, and private studio programs throughout Elmore County.
