The City of Prattville has announced its "Draw it, Paint it, Sculpt It" Yaupon Tree Art Contest. Considered one of the largest in the state of Alabama, the Yaupon tree at the Creative Arts House, in downtown Prattville, serves as a focal point for the newly renovated Creekwalk. Its twisted branches and unique features make it ideal for this community art contest.

Any art medium, except photography, will be accepted, including but not limited to, oils, acrylics, watercolor, gauche, pencil, charcoal, pastels, clay, metal, wood, glass and mixed media. The winner of this contest will receive a $100 cash award.

Entries can be submitted by mail to 101 West Main Street, or hand delivered to the Cultural Art/Special Events office at 203 West 4th Street. The deadline to submit your entry is Tuesday, May 1, 2012. For more information and complete contest rulespdf, call (334) 358-0297.
