The Friends of the Yellow Barn Studio are excited to present the 22nd Annual High School Art Exhibition, an annual high school art competition we have sponsored for the past 21 years.

This year the virtual, juried exhibition includes exceptional art work by talented high school students from DMV area high schools. Congratulations to the awardees!

First Prize of $500, Second Prize of $250, and Third Prize of $150 are awarded to our judge’s top three picks.  Plaza Gift Certificates of $25 are also given to the 37 students whose additional works juried into this exhibit.

A big shout out to the 23 High Schools in the DMV whose teachers motivated their students to produce works of art that were as unique as each one of them. This year, the participating schools included: Albert Einstein High School, Bethesda Chevy Chase High School, D.C. International School, Richard Montgomery High School, St. Andrews Episcopal School, Great Mills High School, Landon School, Montgomery Blair High School, Northwest High School, Saint John’s College High School,  Sidwell Friends High School, Sherwood High School, Stone Ridge High School, Thomas S. Wooton High School, Walt Whitman High School, Walter Johnson High School, Winston Churchill High School, Byrn Mawr School, H. B Woodlawn, McLean High School, James Madison High School, Loudoun School for Advanced Studies, and Yorktown High School.

We are very grateful to Web Bryant, Yellow Barn instructor and USA Today Illustrator for his expertise in judging and taking the time to review the 123 submissions and jury in our 40 students.


The Friends of the Yellow Barn Studio would like to express our “Thanks” to several very important people and groups without whom this show would not have been possible.

We sincerely thank The Friends membership and supporters whose dues and generous donations allow us to give back to our community for this very worthy event.

And, we would like to express our gratitude to Jack Fuller who every year has donated the “Second Place” award in memory of his wife, Mitzi Yater Fuller, a Washington artist and teacher who was a devoted student of the Yellow Barn for many years.

Lastly, we would like to thank Plaza Art and Tara Walsh for their continued support and dedication to The Friends! Plaza donated our “Best in Show” gift certificate for $500 for this show.  Our events would not be the same without Plaza Art… Yay Plaza!!

It is clear that this is a time of heightened creativity. For the first time many of our student artists put their work up for sale. The artists are responsible for their sales, and the delivery of their works. The Friends will contact the young artists if there is a prospective buyer.

Congratulations to the 123 talented artists who submitted their work to this show!.

Many thanks to everyone who took part in this event!
