Methow Arts seeks to mobilize a cross-race, cross-class community of young people to support the reflection of current social causes we face today. Examples of social causes include but are not limited to: hunger, global warming, get out the vote, save the bees, black lives matter, immigration reform, lgbtq, endangered species, women’s rights and so many more.

  • We strongly encourage participants to have their pieces tell a story of hope.
  • Students’ artwork must be original. Computer-generated images and traced images will not be judged. It is critical that submitted artwork not be overly derivative of images found on the Internet, in print media, or elsewhere. To avoid copyright infringement, works thought to be copies may be disqualified.
  • Students participating in the contest should compose their chosen cause on a 16 x 20 or smaller surface.
  • Media: We highly prefer artwork created in one or more of the following mediums: ink, acrylics, oil paint, pastels, water color, colored pencils, color marker, chalk, pastels, charcoal, or paper collage. We discourage artwork created solely using plain black pencil or weak colored pencil. If you have questions please ask us info@methowartsalliance.org

Methow Arts will establish dedicated artwork drop-off locations and times to increase across Okanogan County. Artwork may also be mailed to Methow Arts, PO Box 723, Twisp, WA 98856.
