Last month I talked a little bit about CHARM IT!’s upcoming Design-a-Charm Contest that was going to be in conjunction with Crayola. Well, friends, it is time to start drawing and submitting your designs, because the contest is now open!
From April 23rd through May 21st, 2014, budding artists can submit their design for a charm and enter to win.
As a homeschool mom, I love this contest, because it generates a lot of discussion about size, scale, colors, and the whole design process. Not only is it a great art lesson for the kids’ portfolios, but it’s just plain fun.
Here’s the official word from CHARM IT! about the contest:
