Arts council holds peony poster contest

As part of the Homer Peony Festival to be held July 10-25, the Homer Council on the Arts sponsors a peony art contest for students in grades kindergarten through 12th. Entries are due at the arts council office at 355 W. Pioneer Ave. by 4 p.m. June 29.

Original art should be in the 8.5-by-11-inch size and done in portrait orientation. Work should be two dimensional in any medium, but avoid reflective media like glitter. The artist’s name, grade and parent(s) contact information should be on the back in pencil.

Independent judges will select one winner from each age group: K-2, 3-4, 5-6, 7-9, 10-12. Winners will be published in the Homer News on July 9 and will receive a take-and-make art project: do-it-yourself peony window decals. Winning posters will be distributed during the Homer Peony Festival on July 10-25.

For more information, call the arts council at 235-4288.
