Welcome to the Art.Write.Now.Tour!

Produced and presented by the Alliance for Young Artists & Writers, the Tour showcases a selection of works from the Scholastic Art & Writing Awards—inspiring and innovative work by teens from all across the country.

Now in its eighth year, the Tour is celebrated for being the most fresh and relevant look at creative work by young artists today. If you want to know what issues are on the minds of teenagers, the Art.Write.Now.Tour is sure to provide valuable insights through the lens of sophisticated and captivating artworks.

In addition to approximately 50 visual art works selected from the Art.Write.Now National Exhibition, the Art.Write.Now.Tour features The Best Teen Writing, our annual anthology of selected Gold Medal writing, displayed on iPads. A full-color catalog accompanies the Tour.
