The Warwick Public Library Teenspace is celebrating art and literature in their teen art contest called It Came From a Book, which is happening now at the library.
Teens in grades 7 to 12 are invited to submit a piece of artwork inspired by a book of their choice. Artwork can be in any two-dimensional medium, including paint, pastels, photography, collage, manga, pencil-drawing and similar media. Submissions will be accepted at the Teenspace now through Sept. 30.
Teens fill out a short entry form when they drop off their piece. The staff will narrow down submissions and finalists' work will be showcased in the Teenspace for voting.
Voting will take place in the library or online. The community will be able to vote for their top choices for First, Second and Third place. Winners will be announced during Teen Read Week in October. Prizes include gift cards to local art supply vendors where they can stock up on supplies for the next masterpiece.
So if you know teen artists, encourage them to drop off their submissions by Sept. 30. For more information, contact Teen Librarian Liz Gotauco at 739-5440, extension 6 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
