  The Arts

The Superintendent's High School Art Show is an annual event co-hosted by OSPI and the Washington Art Education Association (WAEA). High school students from all nine of the state's educational service districts (ESDs) participate in this artistic celebration each year. The finalists from these regional ESD shows are invited to participate in the Superintendent's High School Art Show.

Washington State Youth Art Month Flag
Created by students from Hamilton International Middle School

The Washington Arts Education Association sponsors an annual event that provides an opportunity for students to design a flag representing and in celebration of the arts; dance, music, theatre, and visual arts. The submission chosen for this year's flag was created by two students from Hamilton International Middle School. The students along with their teacher Richard Serp, will be honored at the Annual Superintendent’s High School Art Show and their flag will remain on display at OSPI. See this year's YAM flag.
