                          Join PBCATA 2015-2016

We have a great year of workshops at discount prices, members' only art shows, and art exhibits that showcase the work created by your talented students. 

PBCATA raises money which goes directly to our scholarship fund.  Every year, two scholarships are awarded in the amount of $1,000 each to students pursuing a college degree in the Visual Arts.

Along with raising money for the scholarships, PBCATA also sponsors ribbons annually for the South Florida Fair and the Palm Beach County School District Annual K-12 Student Art Exhibition.

2016 South Florida Fair


The January South Florida Fair visitors will have the opportunity to “Discover the Palm Beaches” powered by FPL as part of the Fair experience.  As they stroll through the Fair’s main exhibition center, visitors will be greeted by representatives from the county’s top attractions and will learn all about the great places to play, stay, shop, and dine in Palm Beach County.


As part of the Exposition, the school art project will be “A Pair of Flip Flops”.  Each participating school will be provided with the “Flip Flops” to decorate for display at the Fair. 


Please decorate both sides and decorate with a lightweight material when possible as the projects will be displayed from the ceiling in the main exposition center for the 17 days of the Fair. Each project will be displayed so the visitor can easily see the details of your work.  


Fair visitors will vote on their favorite project, so be sure your school name is visible.  Each category – elementary, middle and high school – will be awarded a 1st, 2nd and 3rd place cash award.  An overall “Best of Show” cash award will be selected by a panel of judges during the Fair.


                                          First Place……………………………$200 each

                                          Second Place……………………......$100 each
