Natchitoches Art Guild to hold Kids’ Creative Canvases Competition in September

Due to the current health crisis, the 2020 Kids’ Creative Canvases Competition, sponsored by the Natchitoches Art Guild and Gallery, originally scheduled for June has been moved to September. We announce this call to art, open to students from 1st grade to 12th in the Natchitoches Art Gallery at 584 Front Street, Suite 102 in Natchitoches.

NAGG is currently accepting applications for the event which runs from Sept. 13-27. Application forms and canvases can be obtained from the gallery during regular gallery hours Sunday through Saturday from 10 am – 5 pm.

The entry fee of $10 provides each participant the opportunity to display original work in the gallery and the required canvas. Each student will be allowed (1) one entry, with a maximum of 60 total entries. Due to legal restrictions, works cannot be sold through the gallery.

Prizes will be awarded in each category – Elementary, Junior High and High School, with awards being presented on Sept. 27. In compliance with current guidelines, and in order to do our part in keeping safe, each category award will be presented at staggered intervals to minimize contact. Sadly, we must limit attendance to the artist and parents/guardian.
