CALLING ALL KIDS!: Seeking Artists 12 & Under for YOUNG AT ART 3

CALLING ALL KIDS!: Seeking Artists 12 & Under for YOUNG AT ART 3

This Deadline Expired: Thursday, July 18, 2019

At OFF THE WALL, they are firm believers that each and every person is BORN TO CREATE. The love of art and art-making is genuinely innate. All kids want to express themselves in all sorts of media, beginning with fingerpainting and clay, and once motor skills kick in, picking up every crayon, pencil and marker they can get their hands on and taking 3D assembly to a new level.

So why is art often pushed to the side in everyday life? Why do galleries need more viewers and buyers and museums more visitors and members?
The fault lies with society, and it lies with us, especially if we don’t — as parents, caregivers, teachers, mentoring influences — encourage creativity to blossom and grow. We must emphasize the value and power of artistic expression at every turn.
Now through THURSDAY, JULY 18, OFF THE WALL will be accepting entries RIGHT HERE, and they can only come from ARTISTS 12 AND UNDER. All you need to do is:
* Send UP TO 5 IMAGES (optimally JPGs) to offthewallgallery@gmail.com.
* The work can be in ANY MEDIA but if it’s 2D it needs to be less than 48″ in combined dimensions (height+width) and if it’s 3D, it needs to easily fit in their case.
* You should send TITLES, FRAMED SIZES and PRICES (and the framed sizes can be approximate…we understand if you’re not framing UNTIL your kids’ work is accepted!).
* And send along key info: who is our artist, what’s her or his age, school, grade level in September.
That’s all! There are no entry fees, no additional stipulations. The resulting show, YOUNG AT ART 3, will run Sunday, August 4 to Friday, September 20. (Accepted work needs to be dropped off 8/3 and unsold work needs to be picked up 9/21.)
Many thanks in advance for helping your children and your students enter and for helping us recognize the next generation of great artists, growing up in our midst.
