For twenty years, The Student Art Festival has helped nurture and encourage young talent on the East End. Over 5,000 students from kindergarten through high school from 11 participating public and private and home schools in the Amagansett, East Hampton, Montauk, Wainscott, Southampton, Bridgehampton, Shelter Island, and Sagaponack districts are invited to participate. The exhibition celebrates the artistic pursuits of our young people by exhibiting their work in a museum environment and salutes their teachers who cultivate and inspire the creative process.
