Emerging Artists Competition

USCB Recognizes Top High School Artists

Emerging Artists Stage

Each year, the University of South Carolina Beaufort conducts its Emerging Artists Competition at the Center for the Arts on the historic Beaufort campus.

High school juniors and seniors from public and private secondary schools throughout South Carolina and neighboring counties in Georgia and North Carolina submit works of art for consideration by a panel of judges drawn from the university’s faculty in the Studio Art program. The works represent painting, printmaking, photography, sculpture, ceramics and media arts.

On the day of the Awards Ceremony, selected young artists come to USCB, attend the ceremony, tour the campus and are invited to participate in workshops conducted by USCB Art faculty.

The Emerging Artists program is USCB's attempt to encourage high school artists to pursue the visual arts. It showcases USCB's Studio Art degree program and arts scholarship funds. For more information contact Dr. Joanna Angell.
