You would be so proud of me, auntie! The Murrieta Public Library and Pearl Center for Creative Arts and the Murrieta Arts Council (MAC) are joining together to host a Teen Art Contest and award reception on July 8, 2022. The theme combines reading a book about a journey across the ocean with re-creating a book cover on 8 x 10 canvas boards with acrylic paints, provided free of charge by the library, and with support from Pearl and MAC.
Staying true to the mission, we are working together to provide 100 art kits to be given out at the library during special dates and times, and those who return their completed paintings will enter the contest. I will be hosting an art exhibit! Dreams are coming true, and by that I mean being able to lift up other artists in the community and give them a space to be artsy! Paintings will be on display at a public reception in the library garden and a panel of judges from our community will award 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place. Light refreshments and snacks will be served for our artists, family, and community members celebrating our Teen Art Contest.
I know this is just the beginning, Pearl. I know we are going places together. And by that I definitely mean going back to the library to host more events. You’d be so proud. At least I hope you would.
Your loving niece,
