The Art Contest
This contest was open to all students in elementary grades one through four, including students from private and public schools as well as home-schooled students.
Theme: Sharing Cultures
Have you ever eaten food from another country? Have you ever celebrated a holiday that's different from the holidays in your family? Our lives are enriched by contact with other people and cultures.
In a drawing or painting, depict two or more people sharing their customs, rituals or traditions from their different cultures. For example, it could be a traditional meal/food, clothing, a dance, a holiday, a game, a ceremony, etc.
The subject of the artwork entry is to be the student’s personal expression of “Sharing Cultures” and may be in either descriptive or abstract form. Artwork will be judged on originality of design, clarity of theme message, and artistic merit.
Participation: Entrants will be divided into two groups by grade:
- Group A—1st and 2nd grades, as of September 1, 2011
