Artwork Wanted

If you love to draw and paint, then this project is for you!!! The Isbell Library is looking for amazing artwork to help decorate the library walls!! If you would like your artwork featured in the Isbell Library, please read the guidelines below:

Library Art Guidelines:

· All artwork must have a “reading theme”. For example: it could be the cover of your favorite book or just a picture that shows that reading can take you places. Get creativity!

· The artwork needs to be on a 16 x 20 sized canvas. You can

purchase the canvas at any local art store (Hobby Lobby, Michaels etc).

· There is no deadline for this project, we will display the artwork as they come in!

· Turn your artwork in to Mrs. Beathard when finished!

I’m looking forward to seeing your art come to life in the Library!
