The North Central Louisiana Arts Council is excited to announce Schoolyard Art Brawl, a live painting competition among art teachers in Lincoln Parish.  It will be held on April 8th as part of the Ruston Makers fair in conjunction with the Railroad Makers + Music Festival.  The competition will be from 12noon – 1pm, in the parking lot of the Historic Fire Station. The participating artists will have one hour to create a painting, and the winner will be determined by “bucks in buckets” — votes that are dropped into voting buckets by the public. The winner will receive $100 from NCLAC, and the voting dollars will go toward NCLAC’s programming. After the competition, the paintings will be for sale to benefit the artists. Participating Lincoln Parish art teachers include DeLena Ashworth, Emily Pullin, Crystal Pye, Nancy Waldron, and Becky Strickler.
