    Visual Arts --  Include many art forms that are visual in nature. The artist (student submitting entry) is a person who captures their own thoughts and ideas to create a visual piece of art.  
    Art submissions in these categories must be new original art work inspired by the theme, "Within Reach" and should be mounted on a flat surface.  
    DON'T submit art work created in an art camp, but DO use the techniques from that camp to help you create a newly inspired piece of art for submission.  
    The art work must: 
    • Be a new and original work based on the theme "Within Reach".  A large part of the judging is based how the work relates to the theme as spelled out in the Artist's (written) Statement. 
    • Not exceed 24x30 inches in dimensions, including matting.
    • Be mounted on sturdy material.
    • Be 2D.  You cannot submit artwork containing 3D objects (i.e. beads, pasta, etc.).
    You can read all the rules from the Texas PTA here.
