Overview:"Circle of Life" Art Competition

Armwood KidsWestshore Plaza working in conjunction with the Outdoor Arts Foundation and the Tampa Bay performing Arts Center is proud to introduce the Tampa Bay Area's first invitational art competition in celebration of the coming of Disney's The Lion King.

Berkeley KidsArt students and their teachers from Armwood High School, Berkeley Preparatory School, Blake High School, Canterbury School of Florida, Mitchell Elementary School, Saint Raphael's Catholic School and Tampa Preparatory School have answered the challenge.

Blake High School KidsSeveral weeks ago, these schools were given materials describing the Broadway production of Disney's The Lion King. They were asked to come up with a concept for a painting based on the "Circle of Life" theme of The Lion King.

Canterbury KidsFrom Friday, October 11th through Sunday, October 13th, these students and teachers will be creating original works of art on canvas. Students of all ages we're invited to participate; and, throughout the weekend, these students will be working diligently on their paintings.

Mitchell Elementary KidsOn Sunday, October 13th, at 4:00 p.m. all schools will be finished with their paintings. A panel of judges will evaluate the paintings and at 5:30 p.m., the first, second and third place finishers will be announced. All paintings will remain at Westshore Plaza until December 12th at which time they will be moved to the Tampa Bay Performing Arts Center for the seven-week run of The Lion King.

Tampa Preparatory KidsIn May of 2003, all seven of the paintings will be auctioned off at the annual Outdoor Arts Foundation auction with proceeds going to each school and to the Foundation.
