    This year we are encouraging students to think outside the box to create works of art and songs that push creative boundaries. We are asking students to dismiss classic themes and notions to create something unique and thought provoking. There are no limits on what the subject matter can be. We only ask that the students use their creativity and imaginations and venture “off the beaten path” of traditional art making. We ask students to use the following works of art and concepts as inspiration to create their own works of weird, wild and abstract art and music. $25,000 worth of awards are available for Louisiana Juniors and Seniors!
