Matton Public Library Art Contest for Grades 6-12 Students

Do you have excellent skills in artwork? The Matton Public Library is excitingly encouraging the Art Contest for the students enrolled in 6-12 grade, where the tale is a fantasy world of the child. The Matton Public Library is encouraging the students to demonstrate their skill of story on the theme ‘’Tale and Tail’’ through an artwork where the student is flexible to create a completely owned story through the picture based on the beloved book or treasured pet which might be any pet, mermaid, a vampire, your pet hamster or favorite animal child wish to draw. As long as the tale has a tail, the artwork will be considered.

This contest aims to explore the child’s mind and allow them to sketch out their fantasy stories which they imagine to have. Their mission is to encourage the students’ interest in art from a very young age, where the student will start to focus on their skills and become future artists.
