Awful Art Contest

Awful Art Contest

March 15 – April 15

Gone are the days of feeling the pressure to make good art. Now is the time to make bad art, on purpose! This contest will open March 15, and you will have until April 15 to submit a picture of your appalling artwork. April 19, we’ll let the masses vote for the best of the worst artwork in each age category on Manitowoc Public Library’s Facebook page. Winners will be generously rewarded for their stinky art skills.

Disclaimer: This contest is intended strictly for light-hearted fun!
