Art Colony Association is dedicated to helping arts education programs. We are happy to partner with teachers and students in the Houston area to get students excited about art and explore their creative side.

The BCAF Middle School Art Contest offers students 5th-8th grade the opportunity to participate in a 2-D juried art competition. Submissions will displayed at Spring Street Studios in the Art in the Middle Exhibition, a special exhibition for the students, teachers and families to view the student artwork.

The top 30 finalists receive ribbons and are put on display at the Bayou City Art Festival. Art Colony Association hosts an award ceremony for the students and present the top three winners and winner of the online People’s Choice Award during the festival.
