When I scheduled August 1st as the deadline for the second Art For Homeschool Art Show I had no idea that on that day I would be getting into a truck and making the drive to Texas. I did not even get to look at the entries until several days later. My husband and I were on the road for three days driving 12 hours a day.
Why were we driving to Texas? No, it was not a vacation. My husband and I have moved. Life brings all sorts of exciting changes. I was offered a teaching position at Navasota High School. We decided it must be in the plan so I took the job. Now I get to enjoy my old home that has been here waiting for me and being near my children and granchildren. I am excited about starting this new venture.
I will be teaching Art. Don’t worry though. I will still be writing for Art For Homeschool and continuing the online art show. I also plan to produce more art lesson videos.
Well, enough about me.
The art show entries are in! The theme is “Summer”. We increased our numbers slightly from the last show.
There are seventeen entries with six students and 3 parents participating. That is encouraging. I am proud to show everyone the quality entries. I love the creativity of the children and parents as they gave their interpretation of the show theme.
Now you get to participate. We are going to have a People’s Choice award. That means that everyone gets to vote one time for their favorite artwork. Participants in the show are allowed to vote too. The winner will receive a $10 gift certificate donated by Dick Blick Art Supplies.
I am limiting the People’s Choice Award to the student entries. Each entry below has a number next to it. Place the number of your favorite entry in the comments section and say something about your reason for choosing the particular piece of work. You must include a valid email address for the vote to count.
I will keep the voting for the People’s Choice open until August 15. On August 15 all awards for the show will be announced.
Please enjoy the show. Take some time to view and vote.
