  • Elementary, Middle & High School Exhibitions

    Art exhibitions for elementary, middle, and high school students are held annually. Art teachers are expected to submit student work for these exhibitions. Traditionally, the middle and high school exhibitions are juried and held at FSCJ Deerwood Center Campus and South Campus, respectively. The Best of Elementary is traditionally on exhibition at the Jacksonville Main Branch Library in downtown Jacksonville; while additional elementary school works are be on display at select library locations around Jacksonville.

    Exhibition Policy
    In year's when we hold physical art exhibitins, it is the policy of the DCPS Fine Arts Department to give all student work back to the student after one year of exhibition opportunities.
