Children’s Art Exhibit

Take out your crayons or paints, and get ready to create! In 2011, art by Primary children from around the world will appear in an exhibit at the Church History Museum and in an online art show. Here’s how you can get involved:

  1. Create a work of art on the theme “The Gospel Blesses My Life.” Your artwork could be about families, temples, missionaries, prophets, scriptures, nature, service, pioneers, Primary, or Church activities.

  2. You must be between the ages of 5 and 12, and you may send only one work of art.

  3. Your artwork should be on a flat piece of paper or fabric. It should be no larger than 12 inches by 14 inches (30 cm by 36 cm), and it should not be framed.

  4. You may use crayon, pencil, marker, ink, charcoal, acrylic, watercolor, pastels, oil, or any other two-dimensional medium.

  5. Take your time so your artwork will be the best you can create. Your art should take up most of the space on your paper.

  6. Write your full name on the back of your artwork. Have a parent complete and sign the form below. Then tape the form to the back of your artwork.

  7. Your entry must be postmarked on or before July 31, 2010. Your artwork will not be returned to you.

Your entry might be featured in an exhibit at the Church History Museum, from January 3 to July 4, 2011; in an online art show on the Friend Web site; or in Our Creative Friends. Not all entries will be used or exhibited.
