The School of Art & Design SIU Carbondale invites you to join us for a day of artmaking, art exhibition, art discourse and artbombing* 

ArtBomb is open to High School students and their art teachers and will be conducted by SIU School of Art & Design Faculty, Graduate Students and Undergrads.

ArtBomb is designed to provide students with an opportunity to create art with other artistically engaged individuals, to exhibit artwork for the You Are the Bomb Art Exhibit at the Surplus Gallery on the SIU campus, to compete for a SOAD merit scholarship, and to artbomb SIU and the Carbondale community.

To attend ArtBomb, students must be accompanied by their art teacher(s). Art Teachers may register for 6.0 Professional Development hours and workshops during online registration, and will be given proof of PD-completion upon departure from SIU.
