Visual and Performing Arts

Across Elk Grove Unified, hundreds of students in all grade levels participate in the four disciplines of visual and performing arts: dance, music, theater, and visual arts.

The Superintendent’s Art Contest

Every year, all middle school and high school visual art students are invited to submit entries into the Superintendent’s Art Contest to honor outstanding art students throughout the District in conjunction with Youth Arts Month in March. A new theme is chosen by the Superintendent each year and the winning artwork is displayed as part of the Superintendent’s Gallery in the district office for one year. A special awards reception is held to recognize the winners, their families and teachers. As many as 25 awards have been given out. Both committed sponsors and many volunteers from the local arts community help to make this unique arts event possible.
