YOUNG ARTISTS PROGRAM
The Young Artists Program was created in support of the Arts Council's mission to invest in and encourage the arts in Calvert County. In giving every school-aged child the opportunity to display their work in a professional setting the Arts Council hopes to sow a seed of interest in the future members of Calvert County's artistic community.
Beginning with the 2007-2008 school year, the Arts Council began sponsoring month long art shows in the CalvART Gallery's Student Gallery area. Ultimately over the course of the next couple of years, the Arts Council anticipates featuring each of the public and private schools in the county. These shows allow all of Calvert's art teachers the opportunity to display the artistic creations of their talented pupils in a gallery that already shows the work of some of Calvert County's most well known and celebrated adult artists.
Student Gallery, located within the CalvART Gallery, is open Wednesday - Sunday, 11am - 5pm
The Arts Council also supports the Congressional Arts Competition. Each year, Congressman Steny Hoyer and his colleagues across the country hold a congressional districtwide competition open to any high school student. The winning piece of art from each congressional district is displayed in the United States Capitol for a year. Congressman Hoyer displays all entries in one of his offices either in the district or in Washington, DC. The Arts Council of Calvert County was honored to host the 2015 reception at which the winner for our congressional district was announced.
