Local Schools Art Exhibition

Each year, the Town of Cambridge is proud to support aspiring young artists through the Local Schools Art Exhibition.

The annual event invites local schools to submit student artworks from kindergarten through to Year 6. 

The exhibition encourages creativity and imagination and provides an opportunity for students to have their art project displayed in an exhibition. Artworks are judged by a panel of local artists and art enthusiasts.

A prize is awarded to an overall winner along with Encouragement and High Commendation awards.
