Look what I just came across! A call for entries by Quarry Books. They are looking for unique children’s art ideas to publish in an upcoming book titled 1000 Kids Art Ideas. It sounds perfect for all you artful parents, educators, and kiddos!
Here’s what they say on their site:
1000 Kids Art Ideas is announcing a call for entries: educators, parents, home schoolers, community groups, and caregivers, help us inspire others by submitting digital photos of hands-on art projects by children ages 3-11 (preschool through 5th grade). We are interested in all types of art projects but especially ones that use every day materials in new ways, explore individual creative expression for people of all ages, and are fun! Have you created a sculpture using sponges? Painted with mailing tubes? We want to see your dynamic and exciting art and design! Winners will be published in 1000 Kids Art Ideas which will feature 1000 unique and inspiring ways to be creative with the budding artists in our lives.
Take a look at the actual submission form—there’s more information there! Basically it looks like you just send in a photo and a description.
The deadline is February 15th, so act quickly if you or your kids have a great children’s art idea to share! (Note: Their site says the deadline is Feb 1, but the actual submission form says the deadline is Feb 15.)
