Good morning bloggy art teachers!
So I have to admit I am intrigued and considering submitting
student work for the Sakura Cray-pa Contest.
However, you do not get the work back.
And SERIOUSLY, I do not think I am being ridiculous in thinking this but I have looked through some of the winning and honorable mention art work from years past- and the peacock image above and the tooth image below are from the K/1/2 category and the horse is from the 3/4/5. Don't get me wrong- they are beautiful works of art! However, for real?
I think I am a great teacher I really do and I do not sell my kids short- they are doing great things and I am making waves with them and taught lots of private and semi-private lessons with some overachieving and talented students- but really? Look at the shading, color blending, and attention to detail.
My new 5th graders were having a hard enough time shading spheres this morning... this contest seems a bit skewed.
Is it worth me submitting my students work with NO RETURN... ?
Have any of you submitted work ?
