CareerSource Suncoast Seeks Student Artists!

We want to feature your students’ creativity!

CareerSource Suncoast invites Manatee and Sarasota County students ages 4-18 to submit artwork for the 3rd annual State of Talent Conference themed “Where Creativity Meets Talent.” Artists are invited to submit a piece of two –or three-dimensional work in a variety of media. Two-dimensional mediums should be either 8.5x 11 inches or 11×14 inches (matted preferred, but not required). Three-dimensional pieces should exceed no more than 11x11x11 inches and be no smaller than 8x8x8. Schools are being asked to collect the artwork from students and then I will arrange pickup. Homeschooled students and parents may arrange pickup with me directly. Submissions will be collected from March 27-April 3.

An outside selection committee of local art aficionados will choose the top pieces. Artwork will then be used as centerpieces for the State of Talent Conference on May 2 at Art Ovation Hotel, which is expected to host nearly 300 HR professionals, business owners and community leaders. Students interested in selling their art should indicate a price upon submission and conference attendees will be able to purchase the pieces with 100% returned to the artist. Please join us in celebrating the creative talent in our area!

If you have questions or need to arrange pickup please contact me directly at cdecker@careersourcesc.com or (941) 877-0027. We look forward to seeing what your students create!
