Summer program self portraits sought for Faces of Afterschool Art Project

Children and youth participating in summer programs statewide are being asked to create self portraits for possible display at an art exhibit this fall at the Children's Museum of Phoenix to raise awareness of afterschool programs in Arizona.

Through the Faces of Afterschool Art Project, young artists from 5 to 17 years of age can use any two-dimensional medium (paintings, drawings, prints, photography, digital art, collages, etc.) to capture their personalities. Artwork must be on 8.5 by 11-inch paper and submitted by Aug. 30.

Project guidelines, submission information and registration are available at www.azafterschool.org/News---Events/Faces-of-Afterschool.aspx.
