Student and Adult Art Celebration Returns To Derby City Comic Con
Attention Art Instructors, Art Students
and Talented Adult Amateurs!
The Derby City Comic Con Student Art show has returned with an all new addition! This year we are not only looking for work from student artists but also that of talented adult amateurs.
The show will be divided into four sections. Elementary (K-6thgrade), Middle (7-9), High (10-12) and Adult (18 and over). Prizes will be given for the best and second best piece of artwork and all will be displayed for viewing on the main floor of the convention.
Our theme this year will be: OUT OF THIS WORLD! This is in conjunction with our kids section theme based on the new Star Wars film. Create your best artwork based on the theme in what ever way that you wish to interpret it. Original characters are always best but using characters from comic books, movies or other media is allowed.
All art should be family friendly in content. There is no size parameters to this show but work should be sturdy enough to be attached to a wall with non damaging adhesive products. Matting is appreciated but not required. All work must have the following on the back of it:
Artist’s Grade Level and/or Age
Artists School (if applicable)
Art without this information will not be displayed and there is no guarantee of return.
For students, art may be sent by teachers on the PONY to Kim Wilson at Kammerer Middle School no later than MAY 31st. After this point, arrangements will need to be made by messaging John Wilson at email@example.com . Art will also be accepted on the Friday set-up time for the show, but that will be your final opportunity. Check the Derby City Comic Con website for set-up day times http://www.derbycitycomiccon.com No art will be accepted on Saturday or beyond and judging will take place on Sunday.
Art may be picked up on Sunday after the show or arrangements will need to be made with John at the aforementioned email address. We will attempt to send any unclaimed work back to it proper school when classes resume but there is no guarantee that all work will be returned after that long a time. In short, if you want your art returned, make it easy for us rather than difficult.
We are excited to see what you create! Get out your pencils and be awesome!
