How do I buy some original student art?

I've been to small art fairs in college towns where art students sell their assigned works. The variety of subjects and media is wide and normally the costs are very reasonable (~$20). Are there online versions of this experience?

Definitely browse etsy! It's a really great site with a vibrant community, and there's lots of amazing, creative, hand-made stuff on there. Here's a direct link to the art section. Just looking at the front page of that, I'm tempted to buy stuff...

The quality is pretty good, but the prices might be a bit higher than what you're looking for (although they do have a <$100 category).
