Olympics of the Visual Arts

The Olympics of the Visual Arts (OVA) program provides an opportunity for students to participate in individual or group artistic problem solving. A new series of problems is posed every fall. Students create long-range solutions at their schools, and travel to the Albany area to compete on short-range problems in a day-long celebration of creativity. There are awards for each of the problem categories at every level.

Teachers who can't travel to participate in OVA are welcome to use the problems in their classrooms, conduct a "mini-OVA" in their own district, or sponsor regional events. Artistic problem solving is a great way to get students learning, experiencing and creating!

The 2016 Olympics of the Visual Arts will be held at the SARATOGA SPRINGS CITY CENTER, Saratoga Springs, New York on THURSDAY, APRIL 21, 2016.

Please register by March 1, 2016.

The fee for participation is $150 per district regardless of the number of teachers, school buildings, or student participants.

Contact Roger Hyndman, OVA Director, with questions.
