Holiday Art Contest Winners from Carmel-Clay Schools

Carmel, IN – Winners of the “Holiday in the Arts District” student art contest were recognized at a tree lighting ceremony during the Holiday in the Arts District festivities on December 1st.  Students from local schools were asked to submit a piece of original artwork with a holiday theme to the Arts & Design District Office.  Winning students were recognized by name and awarded a ribbon and small trophy for participating in the contest.

“This was our second year to host a student art contest in the Arts & Design District, and we were thrilled to receive so many wonderful and creative pieces of artwork from our young, aspiring local artists.  The Arts & Design District is an ideal location to display works by local artists of any age.” said Sherry Mielke, Director of Finance and Operations for the Carmel Redevelopment Commission, Arts & Design District Office.

A panel of judges from the Old Town Arts & Design District Merchants Association and Museum of Miniatures selected a first, second, and third place winner in each grade from among the entries.  A list of honorable mention artwork was also chosen.  The winning posters were chosen based on best representation of the theme and creativity.  

All entries are on display in participating businesses in the Arts & Design District throughout December.  Please see the list of merchants hosting student artwork below.  Artwork can also be viewed on-line at www.carmelartsanddesign.com.

“We are so grateful for all the young artists who participated in the contest, and allowed us to display their artwork in our stores for the holiday season,” said Lois Wyant, co-owner of Wyant Photography and Ami Gallery, and chairperson of the Old Town Arts & Design Merchant Association Event Committee.

Students not present at the tree lighting ceremony on December 1st, can stop by the Arts & Design District Office to pick up their ribbon and/or trophy.  The Arts & Design District Office is located at 111  W. Main Street, Suite 140.  Office hours are Monday through Friday, 9-5 p.m. or during Holiday in the Arts District activities on Saturdays, December 8th, 15th & 22nd from 1-5 p.m.

Student artwork can be picked up after the holidays at the Arts & Design District Office, during the month of January.  For more information, please call 571-ARTS (2787).
