All Kids Can…CREATE! contest

VSA arts and CVS Caremark All Kids Can announce All Kids Can…CREATE!, a national call for children’s art
Submission deadline: March 6, 2009

For the second year, VSA arts and CVS Caremark All Kids Can are encouraging children to share their creativity by submitting artwork to All Kids Can…CREATE!. The theme, “Celebrating Who I Am,” invites young people with and without disabilities across the United States to create visual art about their interests, talents, and dreams. All artwork submitted before the March 6, 2009 deadline will be included in an online art gallery. One artwork from each state and the District of Columbia will be displayed in a national touring exhibition that will debut June 2009 in Washington, D.C. Ten of the selected artists will be invited to a congressional reception to celebrate the opening of the exhibition. Teachers are eligible to receive $1000 for use in the classroom by submitting their students’ artwork and answering a few short questions.

Please visit www.vsarts.org/allkidscancreate for more information, including eligibility, entry instructions and a link to the online application. All artwork must be submitted electronically through Artsonia (www.artsonia.com/allkidscancreate).
