Children's Painted Ceramics Project

More than 1,000 fifth-grade SFPS students participate in this annual program of creating paintings for placemats whose themes are inspired by their SFPS art teachers. The ARTsmart Board selects approximately 100 of the placemat designs to be reproduced on kiln-fired ceramics. Students transfer and paint their designs on a variety of objects, including large and small plates, bowls, vases, and platters.

Each student creates two objects—one to keep and another that is auctioned at the ARTsmart Annual Dinner & Auction to raise funds for our Visiting Artist Program. The laminated placemats are used at place settings during ARTsmart events, and attendees are encouraged to take them home.

For more information please contact: 505.992.2787 info@artsmartnm.org

This year’s auction was postponed and ARTsmart is selling ceramics from the 2020 Children’s Painted Ceramics Project through our Online Store.
