I think an online art show is exciting! Don’t you? An online art show gives home school students a chance to show their stuff and to get feedback from others.
I try to get art show judges that will give the student artists some sort of encouraging comment. I also ask the judges to make a suggestion for possible ways to improve the art work. I have always liked to get my art work critiqued by other artists. It helps you see your work from a different perspective. You do not have to agree with the judge, but it does give you more to think about.
The judges comments are not all the student gets. People looking at this article can make comments and voice their opinion and give encouragement to these young artists. Plus, you can vote for People’s Choice.
What is People’s Choice? People vote for their favorite piece of art work of all the entries. I am not including the parent work in People’s Choice though. Sorry parents! So, when you finish reading this article you can vote once for you favorite by making a comment and telling the number of the art work you like the best. So, take a look. The awards will be announced Monday, so you don’t have a lot of time to vote.
I had no one entered in the 5 – 8 year old category or the 14 – 18 year old category so I will be giving $10 gift certificates to the first and second place winners in the 9 through 13 age group as well as a $10 gift certificate to the People’s Choice Winner. Dick Blick Art Materials donated these awards. Thank you Dick Blick!
Enjoy the work. Please vote! I think the work is beautiful!
9 – 13 year olds:

***NOTE: I am extending voting for People’s Choice to Friday, November 19, CST. Please tell your friends, family and fellow homeschoolers!!!
