clotheslinetees_1362591124_140A Student T-shirt Design Contest is being sponsored by Clothesline Tees to build awareness of the Sarasota Chalk Festival's 2014 theme 'Extinct and Endangered Species.' The contest helps students learn about the nonprofit's cultural goals by engaging them in festival activities. The contest closes October 18th. The judges will pick twelve (12) winning designs. All twelve designs will be featured during a live Clothesline Print Party November 12th and featured during the weekend for festival goes to purchase. The winners will each receive a T-shirt of their design. One grand prize winner will be selected. Their design will be turned into the Student Artist T-shirt for all the participating students to wear while they chalk their artwork in the Student's Chalk Block, November 15 -16, 2014. The winner will also receive a family membership to the Venice Art Center, $250 Clothesline Tees Gift Card and 5 printed T-shirts of their design. Students are an integral part of the Sarasota Chalk Festival and each year students are invited to chalk in the festival creating their own street painting at the Student Chalk Block - a section of the festival dedicated to students. Festival volunteers raise funds so that students can participate in the festival and receive the same benefits the expert artists receive. Participating students receive an artist T-shirt, chalk to create their artwork, lunch and beverages, space at the festival to perform and a street painting class for beginners November 12th from 4:00-6:00 pm.
