I run a holiday challenge every holidays to encourage the children to keep creating even if they are not attending classes. This is completely optional and usually about a third of my students participate.
Our challenge for the past summer holidays was to draw or paint your favourite holiday activity. It was great fun looking at all the artwork produced and the different styles and mediums used. I also loved hearing about all the wonderful activities the children did - I have to admit I was a tad jealous of some of them....
All of the drawings submitted were wonderful and every single child that entered should be proud of themselves for creating something and giving it a go. I've put photos of all the entries below.
I'm pleased to announce the following winners:
1st Prize - Esme (Saturday class)
3rd Prize - Lizzie (Saturday class)
Highly Commended Award - Benji (Saturday class)
Highly Commended Award - Mia (Tuesday class)
Highly Commended Award -Harriet (Thursday class)
All the other wonderful entries:
The certificates, prizes and returned artwork has been placed in the children's lockers.
If you are looking at some ways to introduce more creativity into your household Ana at Babble Dabble Do added a wonderful post today called 42 Creative Ideas for Families. These are wonderful SIMPLE activities that anyone can do. I've printed them out and put them on our fridge. I totally agree with her that "EVERY SINGLE PERSON IS CREATIVE".
