Make Your Mark

'MAKE YOUR MARK’ is an art competition open to anyone worldwide. The competition has been organised by Daler-Rowney as part of their 225th year celebration. They are asking artists of all ages and skill levels to come together to celebrate art, by encouraging more people to paint and make their mark. This competition is about personal inspiration, so those interested can paint whatever you like. There are 4 categories: below 12 years old, under 16, full-time art student, and leisure painter.

I am encouraging everyone to be a part of this. With the ongoing preparation of Art In Site magazine's Covers Project, this can get the (dormant) artist in you going! I've shown this to Andee and boy, it's so good to see her intrerested. She just submitted an entry for a Christmas card cover sponsored by Scholastic Books with the theme, "Give the Gift of Reading". I sort of got her started when she was in Kindergarten when there was a parent-child competition sponsored by Phoenix Publishing, the 1st Golden Crayon Awards. It was a Draw-A-Book contest, with the theme "Spending Quality Time with a Parent". After an on-the-spot elimination process, her entry Tiny Turtle Tanya was to represent Miriam College Child Study Center to the contest finals at the World Trade Center in Pasay. ..and WON!!!
