Art Submissions

Below are the Art Submissions which are currently accepting online Submissions.

The Art of Kindness: Visual Art Submissions

The exhibition is taking place during BC Youth Week and during National Mental Health Week, so we have chosen “The ART of KINDNESS” as the topic for this year. We encourage students to explore what KINDESS means to them in their own lives and in their own language. Students will draw inspiration from whatever KINDNESS means to them, and perhaps even what it means to be impacted by KINDNESS. We believe the resulting exhibition will be a great success and create powerful conversations and heart felt art around the subject.

Choose this submission for Category 1: Visual Art

  • 2D Art - Includes all media on board, canvas or paper (excluding Photography - see below).
