Mansfield ISD students, Mansfield community members and residents 14 years of age or older.
“Paint Your Sky” art contest, inspired by this year’s Mansfield Reads! book, “The Same Sky” by Amanda Eyre Ward. Entrants are asked to create a representation of what they see in their sky using a medium of their choice, such as watercolors, acrylic, pastels, colored pencils, etc. Entries must be on 9″x12″ paper and accompanied by an entry form that is online and at the library.
Judges will select the top three entries in the following two groups: 14 years old to 18 years old, and 19 years and older. The winning artists in each age group will receive a $50 gift card to Michaels craft store and a copy of “The Same Sky.” Second place and third place will receive Michaels gift cards in the amounts of $25 and $15, respectively.
Library staff will mount all artworks to foam board and display them in the library during the month of April. While we will do our best to take care of each entry, we cannot guarantee that work will not be damaged.
Entrants can pick up their art after the Evening with the Author on April 29. All work not picked up by May 7 will be discarded.
Update on 3/31/2016: The deadline has been extended to April 8.
The contest is open now, and entries must be submitted to the library by April 1, 2016.
