Creativity Comes Alive with Nationwide Back-To-School Art Contest, hosted by Time4Learning
FT. LAUDERDALE, FL – Time4Learning, a national homeschooling platform and a Cambium Learning Group Company, today announced that it will once again celebrate student artwork during its nationwide 2021 Back-to-School Art Contest. Beginning today, children can submit hand-drawn artwork for the chance to see their design come to life as a custom-made stuffed creation. The contest will run through Monday, October 18.
Only one design per child will be accepted. Drawings must be uploaded as a picture to the official entry website.
“Activities that foster creativity and imagination are integral to creating an enriching, child-centered homeschooling experience,” says Time4Learning President and Founder John Edelson. “Our contest recognizes the strong relationship between artistic expression and academic success, while celebrating self-expression and independent thinking.”
Parents can utilize the Back-to-School Art contest to reinforce key learning skills in four ways, shares Edelson:
- Provide choices. Offer your child a range of materials such as markers, crayons and colored pencils to design their stuffed toy to encourage creativity.
- Help make a plan. Encourage your child to practice critical thinking skills by outlining how they will translate their vision into a design.
- Talk with your child. Ask open-ended questions about their work that foster discussion. Asking children to describe their artwork reinforces language skills.
- Use technology. Older children can strengthen their math skills by creating digital designs that reinforce concepts such as spatial reasoning and measurements.
Entries will be accepted until 11:59 pm EST on Monday, October 18. Four winners will be selected from three age categories, totaling 12 winners. Age categories include six and under; seven to 12; and 13 to 18. Winners will be announced on Friday, October 29 and contacted by the Time4Learning team to coordinate the creation and delivery of their custom-made, stuffed work of art. Other terms and conditions may apply.
