November 2011 Art For Homeschool Art Show
Hello! Welcome to the November 2011 Art For Homeschool Art Show! We have some really great art work for everyone to view. I hope you enjoy seeing this work created by homeschool students. We had 12 pieces of art entered in the show by 8 artists and two pieces from a homeschool parent. Yeah!!!! I love it when our parents enter their work. When a child creates artwork alongside a parent or grandparent fond memories are created as well.
I have uploaded the artwork to a gallery. You can click on the thumbnails to see a larger view of the work. There are photographs, colored pencil drawings, pastels,oil pastels, collages, watercolors, and pencil with marker. This art show was created to give homeschool students a safe place to showcase their work and to also get recognition for their efforts. The show is judged and awards will be announced November 15. This time the show will be judged by my Art II Students at Navasota High School. Be sure to come back on November 15 to see the results.
You, the viewer, can also be a part of the judging experience. In addition to awards given in the different age groups, 5 to 8 years, 9 to 13 years, and 14 to 18 years; I ask the public to vote for “People’s Choice”. I like to spread the awards around, so having a People’s Choice award gives the general public a chance to voice their opinion. You may not have any art training, but you know what you like. So, if you have found our show, I would appreciate it if you would participate and place a vote for your favorite. If you are going to vote please take the time to look at all the art work. Voting is done by making a comment on this post telling me the title of your favorite and the artist’s name. I will close the judging at midnight CST on November 13. In addition, if you want to encourage these budding artists, go to the Art For Homeschool Flickr Group and make comments on each entry. Gift certificates donated by Dick Blick Art Supply will be awarded to the winners. Thanks Dick Blick.
Creating artwork is very personal. I remember how hard it was for me to enter my first entry in an art show. It takes a lot of courage. I applaud all these students for entering the art show and putting their work on display. Thank you for your participation and for supporting this blog! Please take a moment to tweet about the show or announce it on facebook or whatever social network you may be a part of. Thanks.
