The NewSpring Student Art Auction is held annually each spring, featuring selected works of art (drawings, paintings, ceramics and jewelry) by Spring Branch ISD secondary students. The Art Auction provides an opportunity for each student to be recognized for their talents and experience the marketplace at work. Students receive 100% of the proceeds from the sale of their artwork.
The 2021 Student Art Auction was held April 26th through 28th as an online auction to comply with social distancing requirements. Despite a very challenging year of virtual, hybrid and in-person art classes for both students and their art teachers, art students submitted 117 pieces of artwork for consideration. 51 works of art were selected for the online auction. On May 14th, we held an awards party to present checks to the student artists. Many students brought their families with them to celebrate their accomplishments. They were happy and proud to receive a check for their creative work.
We look forward to returning to an in-person event for the 2022 Student Art Auction where we can all gather, meet the students and art teachers, and view the artwork.
