Spotlight on BVAEA Art Educators

Virtual 2021

This is your opportunity to create a work of art using the Art Contest Guidelines with the theme of Environmental Art!

While creating your original Environmental Art, you should videotape the process you used or discuss why you chose to make this creation of Environmental Art.


This will be similar to your presentation when we are onsite during normal times. It will be a 2-3 minutes video.


Please email your video to shirley.hammon@nara.gov and ivy.mestrovic@nara.gov

In the video, please share your creative ideas:

Where did this idea come from?

Why did you decide to use this medium?

Why did you use this color palette?

What emotions did you want to express and connect with your audience?

How to Enter

Enter your digital photos of your artwork in the Art Contest portal using your name as the creator (student) entry name.


Yes, it may be 2-D or 3-D if you prefer. Please provide photos accordingly.
