The following works of art were selected from collected submissions of local student photographers, painters, illustrators, and sculptors. ​

Thank you to all of the students who contributed to this exhibit for inspiring us all with your thoughtful creations.​



The Festival of Young Artists is an annual event held at Saratoga Performing Arts Center that presents student art shows, poetry slams, and live performances ​

featuring hundreds of young dancers, singers, and musicians. ​

This curated gallery space was created to celebrate the work of the students involved in the 2020 festival, which was cancelled as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. It continues to serve as an ongoing platform for student artists in the region to share their artistic visions and achievements – to inspire and enrich their peers and the community. ​




Each year, SPAC’s education and outreach programs inspire more than 49,000 students with over 400 education programs, events, and classes. Participation in the arts can positively change students’ lives by developing valuable learning skills and nurturing confidence, self-esteem, and the ability to express thoughts and emotions.
