Young Artists Program

For the young artist who wants to showcase their talents, the APPLAUSE Young Artists Program offers budding artists and writers the opportunity to demonstrate their individual artistic skills in competition with their peers.

These contests are juried events for literary, visual, and performing artists grades 6-12, with cash prizes for overall 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place participants in the literary and visual arts categories. Performing artists selected by our judges at the auditions will perform in our Showcase performance at the Santa Ynez Valley High School Theater.

APPLAUSE works in conjunction with the Santa Ynez Valley Artist’s Guild and Gallery Los Olivos to provide professional jurors for the visual art entries. An art walk is held at the end of the competition where the entire community is encouraged to visit the art displayed at the offices of Arts Outreach and then to walk across town to the Gallery.

Share your talents with the community by signing up for the APPLAUSE Young Artists Program!
