Color What You Love!

Tinley Park, Illinois: The Vogt Visual Arts Center wants children to color what they love in their first-ever coloring contest! Pick up an official coloring sheet from the Vogt Visual Arts Center, a Tinley Park-Park District facility, at 17420 S. 67th Court in Tinley Park during its normal business hours. “Every year on Valentine’s Day, people celebrate this day by sending messages of love and affection to partners, family and friends. The “What Do You Love” Kids Coloring Contest is a great way to get kids involved in the gallery exhibit! Whether kids just love to color or want to showcase their creative talents, we want their beautifully colored entries to hang in our gallery for all to see!” said Park District Recreation Supervisor Erin Cortilet.

The contest is open to children ages four to 13 years old. The winner of best picture in each age group receives a goodie bag and the winning pictures will be on display at the VVAC from Feb 8-29 during the “What Do You Love” open gallery exhibit, which features artwork by local and regional artists. Submit entries to the Vogt Visual Arts Center no later than by February 4. Entries must include participant’s name, age, parent’s name and contact phone number printed at bottom of picture (phone numbers and parent’s name will not be on display). Judging takes place on February 5. Winners will be notified by phone.
