ArtContest By Danielle Ducrest

Overture is interested in experiencing artwork from our younger artists. This year, we are excited to launch our first annual Art Contest. Art contest experience is not necessary. All you need is your creativity! Art Contest: What Does Summer Mean to You? Ages: 5-18 When you picture summer, what do you think about? Do you remember the favorite moments of a family vacation? Do you think of summer camp? Is summer a break from school, or did you take summer classes? Does summer mean traveling, or does it mean relaxing at home? We want to know what summer means to you. It doesn’t matter if you draw, paint or sculpt all the time or if you haven’t created much art at all. We want to see your artwork answering this question: “What does summer mean to you?” Entry Deadline Only complete entries delivered/received by Jan. 15, 2016, at noon will be accepted. Please see our Guidelines section for complete contest rules. Judging will be provided by a professional panel of artists representing each accepted medium.
