Okay, TODAY is the last day to showcase your art for the We Heart Art contest/giveaway (details of how the contest works are down below)! On Tuesday, you got to check out all the amazing prizes that will be awarded randomly to a few lucky winners! I also posted some of the pictures of those prizes in my sidebar on the right....just to give you extra incentive!!
One of my blog readers (GAMzu) sent me some beautiful artwork created by her 2 young sons. So I wanted to share it with you all, as these are the entries she wanted to show off...
This colorful ocean drawing was created by her 4-yr old son (soon to be 5). He lives for art. He discovered Paint Shop when he was 2 1/2 yrs old. One day, he was watching his mom edit photos and asked to have a turn and he discovered so many functions that she had never known about that HE ended up showing HER how to do it. The more Paint Shop art he created, the better at it he became.
Her 3-yr old son isn't very into crafts, but he loves to get his little hands on Mom's camera whenever he can. He has been taking photos since age 2, and some of his shots are really special. Below is a just one of the creative shots he has done. While sitting on the front stoop of their home one day, he snapped a picture of his shoe and it turned out to be such an amazing picture! My kids....they take pictures of each other's bare butts and they call that art. Needless to say, I won't be showing off those pictures.
Sooooo....are you all ready to show off your artwork and/or your children's artwork??!!
Remember, our definition of art is very broad and there is no limit to your number of entries.
Kids might feature... a drawing, painting, or sidewalk chalk creation, a video of themselves explaining a piece of artwork, singing, or playing a musical instrument, something they created in the kitchen, or an example of their writing, e.g., short story, poem, etc.
Adults could highlight... a drawing, painting, or a video, something you created on the computer or in the kitchen, an example of your writing, e.g., short story, poem, etc., a sample of your scrapbooking, or art that you created as a child.
It doesn't necessarily have to be anything recent either. If your child created a project for school, show us that! If you just baked an amazing cake, show us that! I know some of you take the most amazing photographs...we wanna see that too!!! If your kids just wallpapered your bedroom walls with magazine cut-outs (ahem...Emily!), show it off, baby!!
