ARTS recognizes the artistic vision and ingenuity of our community’s youth. The Emerging Artists Contest provides an annual opportunity for creative teens, 6th – 12th grades, to showcase their creations at the ARTS' Ross Gallery. The Emerging Artists contest motivates and builds confidence in youth by showcasing the best rural Texas creativity.
