Due to the COVID-19 pandemic social distancing requirements, the 31st Santa Clarita Artists Association Art Classic will be held virtually via Zoom Saturday, Oct. 17, from 7:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.

The fine art submissions will be professionally adjudicated by two judges. Judges decisions are final. There will be a Best of Show Award, as well as 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place ribbons for each division. Each division will need a minimum of five (5) participants for the three placements. If there are eight (8) or more in a division, then Merit ribbons will also be awarded.

Besides being a day to celebrate the work of SCAA fine artists, the Art Classic is normally our main fundraiser of the year that supports our local high school scholarship program. We unfortunately will not be having a Silent or Live Auction this year due to the hardships that individuals and businesses have endured with COVID-19. If you would like to personally donate, or know a business that is able to support, please contact us.
