Big talent can be found at the Venice Boys and Girls Club’s Fine Arts Competition!

Team Venice Paparazzi’s Alex and Edizen were invited to be judges at the Boys & Girls Clubs of Venice’s Fine Arts Competition on Feb. 1, 2019.  And, it was no easy job!   The categories, 9 and under, 10-12, 13-15, and 16-18 were talent packed.  We were tasked with picking the top three for each age group, and it was a long, deliberating ordeal.  The skill, vision, and creativity of these young artists was astounding. Below are some of these magnificent works of art.

About the competition:  Fine Arts pieces created in the Club were submitted by club members of all ages in all mediums. The winners from our local competition are submitted for the regional level and regional level winners are submitted to the national level for competition. Out of the 4000+ Clubs and hundreds of thousands of submissions, BGCV has had 19 National winners!

Center:  Cathy Hession, BGCV’s Art Director Lalo, board member Tracey Thompson Busa and kids
