After every prologue comes a story, and after every story is an epilogue. Be the author of your own story.

AWE’s Teen Arts Council is organizing an art display titled “Prologues and Epilogues”, dedicated to showcasing artworks made by teens (ages 14-18) in the Windsor-Essex community. The display theme is past, present, and future referring to the transitional time period that is experienced in adolescent years.

Your artwork should creatively reflect your interpretation of transitions and times of change. Time is moving very quickly. Why not capture it in a work of art?
