August Art For Homeschool Art Show – “Summer”

It is time to start thinking about what you are going to do for an entry in the second Art For Homeschool Art Show.  I am giving you a little less than two months to prepare some outstanding art work.

If you entered our May show then you already know how to upload you work to the Art For Homeschool Student Group at Flickr, tag it and enjoy viewing other entries. You should feel like a pro. So get busy creating. The theme is “Summer”. I hope you will have a great summer coming up with your entries. Remember to have fun and be safe!!!!! You can skip down and get the basic art show information below.

If you are new to the site let me tell you a little more:

  1. Hi Tonya:

    If you have an account with Flickr and have joined the Art For Homeschool Flickr Group then you are set. Make sure your daughter uploads her entries before August 1. For those that might be going on a summer vacation and will be away during the deadline, you can upload your entries early. ~Terry
