The Crump Theatre Youth Art Contest

Deadline: December 8, 2020

In celebration of the 131st anniversary of The Crump Theatre, the Columbus Area Arts Council (CAAC) has commissioned local artist Jenni Kiesler to illustrate two coloring pages of the historic theater. This fun and whimsical art activity was designed especially for our young aspiring artists! 

Participants must be in one of three age groups, 4 and under, 5–8, and 9–12. A gift certificate to Viewpoint Books will be awarded to one finalist from each age group. 

Enter the Youth Art Contest, and your artwork will be featured in the poster cases outside The Crump, mid-December 2020 through March 2021.
Submissions are due to CAAC by December 8, 2020.
