Creativity comes to life with the national back-to-school art competition, organized by Time4Learning
“Activities that foster creativity and imagination are integral to creating a rewarding, child-centered home schooling experience,” says President and Founder of Time4Learning John edelson. “Our competition recognizes the close relationship between artistic expression and academic achievement, while celebrating self-expression and independent thinking.”
Parents can use the Back to School Art Contest to reinforce key learning skills in four ways, Edelson shares:
- Provide choices. Provide your child with a range of materials such as markers, crayons and colored pencils to design their plush toy to encourage creativity.
- Help make a plan. Encourage your child to practice their critical thinking skills by describing how they will translate their vision into a design.
- Talk to your child. Ask open-ended questions about their work that encourage discussion. Asking children to describe their work strengthens language skills.
- Use technology. Older children can strengthen their math skills by creating number designs that reinforce concepts like spatial reasoning and measurements.
Registrations will be accepted until 11:59 p.m. EST Monday, October 18. Four winners will be selected from three age categories, for a total of 12 winners. Age categories include six years and under; seven to 12; and 13 to 18. The winners will be announced on Friday 29 October and contacted by the Time4Learning team to coordinate the creation and delivery of their bespoke plush artwork. Other terms and conditions may apply.
