Assignment for August
Subject: Anything I Want — You decide what to draw or paint. No more topics. It’s up to you. Good luck!
Three age categories: 1 to 9, 10 to 14 and 15 to 18 years old. Each group will have first-, second- and third-place winners.
Media: Drawing or painting on 81⁄2-by-11-inch unlined paper. We encourage the use of color.
Entry: Send your original art to: The Tennessee Magazine, Artist’s Palette — August, P.O. Box 100912, Nashville, TN 37224. (Please make sure you include the title!)
Deadline: Entries must be postmarked by Monday, Sept. 1.
Include: Your name, age, address, phone number and electric cooperative. Leaving anything out will result in disqualification. Artwork will not be returned unless you include a self-addressed, stamped envelope with your submission. Each entry needs its own SASE, please. Siblings must enter separately with their own envelopes. Attention teachers: You may send multiple entries in one envelope along with one SASE with sufficient postage.
Winners will be published in the October issue of The Tennessee Magazine. First place wins $50, second place wins $30 and third place wins $20. Winners are eligible to enter again after six months. Winners will receive their checks, artwork and a certificate of placement within 30 days of publication.
Congratulations to this month’s winners — and to their parents, teachers and mentors. As all artists can tell you, no man or woman is an island, and we all need the encouragement of a supportive community.
