Students invited to participate in Mayor's Community Art Competition

February 14, 2022

Mayor John Bradberry and the City of Johns Creek invite elementary, middle, and high school students in the city to join in showing us “Nature in Johns Creek.” Johns Creek’s newest Mayor wants to help students showcase what they love about nature in their hometown!

Participants submit 2D art pieces that can be paintings, drawings, multi-media, or digital illustrations. The purpose of this art is to identify and show us what you find inspiring about the nature in Johns Creek. Inspiration may come from the walking trails at Newtown Park, a fish in a stream at Autrey Mill Nature Center, the playground at your school or your own back yard. Use those ideas and create your masterpiece! 

Here’s how it works: 

  1. The great outdoors is Mother Nature’s inspiration, now let it be yours! Get inspired and create your favorite nature-themed masterpiece. 
  2. Digitize your file by taking a (horizontal) picture or scanning it 
  3. Submit your work through the city website
  4. Art Due: Monday, April 11, 2022 

A variety of submissions will be featured on the City’s social media and website. A handful of finalists will be selected by city of Johns Creek staff, and the winning selections (one each from an elementary, middle, and high school student) will be selected by Mayor Bradberry and displayed at Johns Creek City Hall! 

To submit, please visit www.JohnsCreekGA.gov/artcompetition and fill out the corresponding form. We can accept only one submission from each student. We ask that submitted art be 1’ x 1’ up to 3’ x 4’. We recommend including an artist signature in the bottom right-hand corner of the art. The final winners will be invited to City Hall to formally unveil their artwork. 

Submissions will be accepted until Monday, April 11, 2022. For more information, please visit www.JohnsCreekGA.gov/artcompetition
