Following WAM Fest top entries will be displayed at Wabeno area business locations throughout the summer. Middle and high school students from each school system may submit one entry in each of three categories:
➢ Painting/Drawing – watercolor, oil, pastels, chalk, pencil, pen, ink, acrylic, crayon, charcoal.
➢ Digital Art – Fractal art, 2-D/3-D graphics, digital collage, 2-D/3-D digital painting and digital photo manipulation. No videos or gif for this competition. Artwork must be printed for this category.
