Today I am excited to announce a new initiative here at Childhood 101, the soon to be launched…
The gallery will be hosted at Childhood 101 and will feature artwork by children under the age of five from all around the world. Following the recent launch of my e-book, Art Not Craft: The Process of Learning Creatively, I know that regular readers are aware of my passion for children’s art and I think this is a wonderful way to showcase the learning potential of children’s creativity.
And I would love you, the dear readers of Childhood 101, to be involved 🙂 I need you to send me a sample of your child’s artwork to be included in the gallery. If you are interested in submitting a piece, please be sure to read the terms and conditions below carefully and then hit submit to upload your child’s artwork.
To celebrate the launch of the gallery, I have joined with Crayola to offer two fabulous arty prizes. Each artwork that is received no later then 11.59pm on 31 May 2011 (Western Australian time) will go into a random draw to one of two prize packs, each of which include a complimentary copy of my e-book Art Not Craft and a parcel of Crayola creative goodness direct to your door (yes, wherever you are in the world!)
Art Not Craft Kids Art Gallery Terms & Conditions
– Artworks must be handmade by a child between the ages of 0 and 5. There are two age categories 0-2 years and 3-5 years.
– The gallery is limited to one artwork per child.
– The artwork can be created from any creative medium, for example, drawing, painting, collage, sculpture.
– Artworks may be scanned or photographed but must be re-sized to 300px x 300px with a file size no larger than 300kb.
– Childhood 101 reserves the right to refuse publication of an image if it is not deemed suitable for viewing by a young child.
– When submitting your artwork, the following information must be included;
- A title for the artwork – please only name your child’s artwork as a particular image if they have named it that themselves, for example, “An owl.” If they have not given it a name, the title should be something broad like, “Immy’s watercolour painting.”
- The art medium used for making the artwork
- A short description of the process by which the artwork was made
- The artist’s first name and family name (the family name will not be shown in the gallery, just an initial)
- The artist’s age
- The artist’s state and country of residence
- A parent or guardian’s name, email and postal address (this information will not be published or be provided to anyone)
- An artwork image attached
– All children’s art making is to be celebrated for the wonderful learning experience it provides. The purpose of the gallery is not to judge the quality of what a child creates but to celebrating the art making process. As a result one prizewinner from each age category (0-2 years, 3-5 years) will be chosen by random.org.
– All artworks received by 11.59pm, 31 May 2011 Western Australian time will be eligible for the prize draw.
Submit your artwork here.
