It’s a family affair this year~ the 2008 Grand Canyon State Games Art Contest has added two new age categories for adults! The art palette is blank and waiting for parents and students to free their imagination with an array of colors. Bring out crayons, paint, markers, anything you can use to put ideas into art. The Grand Canyon State Games Art Contest Sponsored by Ottawa University promotes creativity through art as an effective method for artist across the nation to express their dreams and ideas for a successful life and a better community. This contest provides an opportunity to compete as a means of building self-esteem.
Draw, paint, decoupage, be innovative artistically as the challenge is on to use creativity and imaginations to put this year’s themes into art.
