The Center for Arts and Wellness Announces its WINTER ART CONTEST WINNERS!!

The Center for Arts and Wellness had organized a ‘Winter’ themed art contest for children earlier this year. Participants were asked to submit original pieces of artwork in the form of a two-dimensional painting. Children could use materials like paints, crayons, oil pastels, gel pens and more to decorate their artwork. The contest invited entries in three age categories, 3 to 6 years, 7 to 9 years and 10 to 15 years. It was aired in December and participants had 3 months, until March 15 to submit their artwork. In all 31 children registered for the contest.

The contest was judged by Sue Funk and Shreshthi Mehta. Sue is a renowned artist, illustrator and child author. Shreshthi is an artist with a passion for teaching. She specializes in curriculum design and facilitation. Both teach at the Center and have offered various types of art classes from beginner level, to art-themed vacation programs, and tribal Warli Art. The pictures were judged on the basis of creativity in depicting the theme, sketching skills, color composition and neatness.

Many children had submitted pictures showing holiday celebrations with a tree, stockings, candy canes, gifts and other decorations. Some others had drawn snowy landscapes or the aurora borealis. Winter activities like snowboarding, ice skiing and snow tubing were also illustrated.

The judges had a difficult time in picking the winners as they were all so good. After much deliberation the prizes were allotted as below:

Category 1: Ages 3 – 6
1st Prize: Shlok Bhatia
2nd Prize: Aayushi Das Gupta
