Young artists ages 17 & under are invited to get out into the sunshine and create a work in your favorite Ozaukee County location. Awards will be presented in each age category: 5 & under, ages 6-8, ages 9-12 and ages 13-17, including a “People’s Choice” award, voted on by the many visitors expected to view the artwork over this year’s Strawberry Festival weekend on Saturday and Sunday, June 28 & 29. New this year, the whole contest kicks off with a fun party for all ages on June 12, featuring music, refreshments and demonstrations by a professional plein air painter.
Finished works on canvas or paper should be unframed and be a completed size of 8x10 or 11x14. Paper may be purchased at the Cedarburg Cultural Center, or artists are invited to use their own paper or canvas. Each artist may complete an unlimited number of pieces, but only one entry per artist may be entered into the contest. Each blank canvas or paper must be stamped at the registration table at the Center anytime from June 12-25, 2014. Unstamped artwork will not be accepted. Art created during the Color Your World Art Camp classes may not be entered into the competition. Have fun getting out into the sunshine with your paints, pencils, crayons or pastels and create a work in your favorite location within Ozaukee County. Please choose your locations safely!
