Hey Creators!*

The theme for November will be:  Friends.

Artists and creators in grades 6-12 are invited to submit artwork of any kind. Write a poem or a short story, paint, draw, make a collage, even submit a photograph. Fanart is welcome. To submit, email your creation to kids [at] scarboroughlibrary.org or bring it to the Youth Services Desk. Exhibition will begin 11/4, but submissions will be accepted through 11/17.

 

*The Creators* project is an opportunity for artists, writers, and creators in grades 6-12 to display their work at the Library. Exhibits must relate in some way to the monthly theme, be smaller than 11"x17", and be any artistic medium (paint, pencil, writing, poetry, etc.).
