This weekend is the last chance to see Guild Hall's 2018 Student Art Festival, which features work by kids in kindergarten through 12th grade.

The show closes on Sunday with a high school awards ceremony from 3 to 4 p.m.

Winners have been chosen by Guild Hall's Teen Arts Council, which is led by Corey Jane Cardoso and Casey Dalene, the museum's curatorial assistant. Ten high school artists will be recognized for best photograph, best photographic portrait, best painting or drawing portrait, best landscape, best mixed-media work, best abstract, best sculpture, best sculpture group, best still-life, and best drawing.

The Teen Arts Council, which was launched last spring, is made up of 10 students from East Hampton High School, Pierson High School in Sag Harbor, Bridgehampton, and the Ross School. The paid positions offered them the opportunity to work with Ms. Cardoso and Ms. Dalene to develop youth programming throughout the year.
