ArtsOC and OCDE announce the
cancellation of the Imagination Celebration Visual Arts Exhibitions. This
includes 1000 Pieces of art at South Coast Plaza, the 3D Art show at Saddleback
Visual Arts, and VSA at Mainplace Mall.
VSA is still accepting applications for a virtual festival this year and the deadline is being extended. Get more information and encourage students to participate here: https://www.icvisualarts.org/vsa-festival
OCDE is committed to finding new ways to celebrate students and teachers in the arts during and after this time.
To that end, we are excited to announce a new social media campaign, specific to Orange County. The goal is to spotlight the great work you all are doing and the resulting work students are creating.
Our theme will be: #OCArts4All
Anyone can use #OCArtsForAll for things like:
Pictures/videos of students doing arts activities at home
Pictures/videos of staff creating activities and leading students in video lessons
Written/recorded commentaries from students and parents
Videos of community leader (mayors, superintendents, etc.) participating in arts activities
Screenshots of VAPA Zoom meetings
Let’s celebrate how the arts connect us!

Outstanding student work (2-D, 3-D, Photography and VSA) from the 1,000 Pieces of Art winners is hand-selected to be displayed at the Festival of Arts Jr. Art Exhibit during their summer exhibition. At the end of the summer, they are sent to the OCDE Kalmus site for display prior to a
student reception and recognition ceremony in early December.
