2018 Teen Art Exposition and Contest


The Livermore Public Library is offering a unique opportunity for teens to share their artistic talent with local artists and the Livermore community by sponsoring the 2018 Teen Art Exposition and Competition. The library invites Livermore middle school and high school students to submit artwork on this year’s theme: Here, there, everywhere.

Livermore residents in sixth through twelfth grades are encouraged to submit an original piece of art. Works eligible for the exhibit are limited to 2D visual media in the following categories: (1) painting: watercolor or acrylics; (2) drawing: pencil, pen, ink, or pastels; (3) photography: digital or traditional film; and (4) mixed media: any combination of techniques.  Entries will be accepted from 10:00 a.m., Monday, February 26, 2018 through 4:00 p.m., Saturday, March 17, 2018 at the Civic Center Library.

Artwork will be judged in each category at two levels, Level 1: 6th-8th grade, and Level 2: 9th -12th grade. Ribbons will be awarded for Best of Show and first, second, and third place for each category. Students may enter one art piece either as an individual or as part of a team. All artists are limited to one submission only; participants may not enter as part of a team and as an individual. All artwork must be framed and/or matted with an acceptable hanging system. For complete submission guidelines and examples of acceptable hanging systems, please see this page.
