We are excited to announce that Davidson Green School will be sponsoring a tent at Art on the Green that will be reserved for young artists. Qualifying participants will be middle and high school students who are serious about art. The purpose of this special showcase is to give young artists an opportunity to be featured at Art on the Green, a juried art festival featuring top-quality artwork from artists throughout the region. Young artists will be able to display and sell their art and participate in a judged competition.
