Do you have a homeschooled child who loves to create art? Here’s a fun opportunity for kids to share their artwork and get some exposure!
Project Home Educated Artist is asking homeschooled artists to submit their art to be featured online, along with their thoughts about art.
The project was designed by Lauri Jean Crowe, who says:
I want to share your creative genius with the world. How? Just answer 5 simple questions, pop me an email and attach an image of your art. Open to any K-12 age homeschooled, unschooled and otherwise home educated artistic students.
Lauri asks that each artist answer the following questions to accompany their artwork:
Meet The Artist Questions for Home Educated Students:
- What types of art do you enjoy making? Why?
- What do you feel is the best way to learn art? (books, videos, in person classes, just doing it, one on one with another artist, etc.) Do you have a favorite book, video, or place you take classes you’d like to share?
- Do you think you would like to have a career as an artist or in an art related field? If so, do you see yourself as a fine artist, graphic designer, art instructor or in another art related position, and why?
- Imagine you are gifted $1000 but you have to spend it on your own art education. How would you spend the money?
- If you were going to send your friend to a cool art related website what would it be and why? Please share the URL(s):
Kids can share up to 3 images of their artwork, as well as a photo of themselves with parent permission.
There is no payment for participation in this project but each participant will get a special original art thank you card in the mail from Lauri, along with “some free exposure along with the opportunity to share your art with the world.”
Meet the Artist posts will begin appearing in February 2015 on Wednesdays of each week. If enough entries are submitted, they will be posted twice weekly.
