With Halloween just around the corner the Paramount Center for the Arts is delighted to offer a fun and exciting opportunity for you and your family to enjoy! Join us for the first ever Halloween Mask Contest and Virtual Exhibition starting today and running through October 31.
These masks should be creative, fun, maybe a little spooky, but definitely family friendly! Please no inappropriate language or imagery, if you are willing to show it to your grandma it is probably appropriate for the competition! Your mask must be 100% original (ie no store purchased, altered, or modified masks) to be considered a part of the competition.
With those rules in mind… the rest is up to you!
Step One- Choose Your Mask Design: Use one of these simple mask templates:
Or search for a template online or use something of your own creation.
Step Two- Have Fun and Be Creative: Use your favorite art supplies or materials to create your mask, you are in charge! Your mask can cover just part of or all of your face, can be abstract, realistic, an animal, monster, creature, alien, a clever homage to famous artwork, anything!
Step Three- Share Your Work: Share your mask on social media and tag @ParamountArtsMN
Or you can send us an email at dsegerstrom@Paramountarts.org
Step Four- Cross your Fingers: Submitted entries will be shared on our social media pages with one lucky winner, randomly selected, receiving the prize of a Paramount Virtual Art Class (including materials) of their choosing! We will contact the winner on Monday November 2.
Costume masks are fun for Halloween, face masks are important during the pandemic.
Wear your mask to keep yourself and others safe!
