Artwork for the K-12 theme show needs to be 12x18" in size (or smaller) but not larger! This would include the 1" black mat around the artwork.

This is a very large show with many, many teachers so please stick to the 10 artwork limit to be sure there is room for all of the student artwork to be displayed.
