Fina Foundation Gallery at the Dallas Museum of Art, l7l7 North Harwood in the Downtown Arts District. The award status of each winning work will be notated on its label following the announcement event on February 7 and for the remainder of the exhibit, which will be up until March 26, 2006.
Eighteen AP Studio Art teachers from area schools that are part of a new, five-year
incentive program, “Creating Schools of Excellence in the Arts” (sponsored by Advanced Placement Strategies, Inc.) were invited to submit up to one work of art per student from their AP Studio Art students for this exhibition. A select panel of judges deliberated for hours over 260 works of art to choose the 38 pieces that are exhibited.
The art created by these AP students is extraordinary in part because the outstanding teachers provide a college level curriculum. Last year, the total Arts (Studio Art, Art History, and Music Theory) scholarships awarded to AP Arts students in eleven area schools for the academic year ending May 2005 was $6,260,161. Many AP Studio Art students received college credit resulting from the portfolios that they submitted for evaluation by the College Board.
The DMA Young Masters Exhibitions began in l994 with the start of the O’Donnell Foundation AP Studio Art Incentive Program, a program that provided financial incentives to both students and teachers.
