The May 1 deadline for the Art For Homeschool Art School has come and gone. There was a theme for the show. I knew that having a theme would cause the entry level to go down, but I had no idea that there would be no entries. Yes, no entries. Wow!
So, I am in contemplation mode. Why no entries? What happened? What did I do wrong? Did I do something wrong? What is the issue? Is their an issue? I am a thinker and I look at everything from a million angles. Maybe having four art shows a year is too much? Maybe the months I chose for the shows are at a really busy time? Maybe the awards are not enticing enough? Maybe this, maybe that….
I began this online art show to give homeschool students a place to show off their work and to try to create a little art community. I think it has been a good forum for the children. We have had some really wonderful work entered in the shows over the years.
Since I began teaching full time in public school I have not had the time to devote to the site that I would like. Sometimes I feel like that is a factor, but my subscription numbers for the website have continued to grow. So maybe an online art show isn’t something that is important to most people. Maybe the art lessons and art project ideas are more what you are looking for.
Maybe the art show should be an annual event? Just thinking.
