Two of the nation’s finest high school artists will travel to Santa Monica at the end of June to be recognized as national winners in the Creative Self-Expression contest sponsored by The Great Frame Up, a custom framing and art retailer.
A $2,000 scholarship is to be presented to each winner by actress and accomplished artist Jane Seymour, spokeswoman for the Creative Self- Expression® Foundation, during a luncheon and awards presentation in Santa Monica. The national competition, sponsored annually by The Great Frame Up, is designed to cultivate and promote the arts and creative thought among teenagers.
The student artists submitted entries to their local The Great Frame Up store where the art was judged by a panel of local art professionals and displayed for the community. The work of each local finalist was then sent to the national corporate office of Franchise Concepts, Inc., where a panel of judges, including Seymour, selected the two national winners.
