What's New!

Submit your artwork to our Teen Art Contest!

The theme for our 2015 Teen Art Contest is Out of This World. Think beyond the scope of the everyday and explore something "out of this world" through art. Imagine a fantastical realm or the deepest depths of space and express yourself on canvas, cardboard, paper, wood, or even metal; the medium is your choice!

Artwork will be accepted on March 2 and 3 at the following libraries: East, Fountain, High Prairie, Library 21c, Manitou Springs, Monument, Penrose, Sand Creek, and County Mobile Library stops.

Guidelines

  • All entrants must be in grades 6 - 12 in March 2014.
  • All entrants must submit an online submission form and Artwork Agreement Form.
  • Entrants may submit only one piece of art.
  • Jurors reserve the right to decline inappropriate entries.
  • Entries must be two-dimensional and no more than two inches deep, including frame. Any textural elements (glued-on items such as pencils, pennies, etc.) must be inside a frame to prevent damage.

For more information, email rphilipsen@ppld.org or call (719) 884-9800, x6336.
