This year, the Oak Ridge Street Painting Festival saw more than 60 artists participate at Jackson Square and raised more than $12,000 in student scholarships.

Since 2000, the event has become an Oak Ridge tradition that provides an opportunity for local artists to showcase their talents while raising money for scholarships for students at Roane State Community College, thereby supporting an educated workforce for our region.  Artists signed up for one of several categories, including Elementary, Middle, and High School categories, along with Adult and Family. Awards were also given for Best in Show, People’s Choice, and a special Heart for Heroes category, designed to provide inspiration and create a heartfelt gesture of honor towards the heroes of the COVID-19 pandemic.
