Simple creative activities are some of the building blocks of child development. Learning to create and appreciate visual aesthetics may be more important than ever to the development of the next generation of children as they grow up. The arts helps children strengthen their motor skills, language development, decision making, visual learning, inventiveness, cultural awareness, and overall has been shown to help improve their academic performance. Featuring young West Virginia artists, check out our Youth Arts Gallery as we change this exhibit every four-six weeks.
West Virginia State Symbols
Tamarack Youth Art Call for Entry - West Virginia State Symbols
Official symbols represent the cultural heritage & natural treasures of each state. When people think of West Virginia, they often think of rhododendrons, a black bear, sugar maple trees or a bright red cardinal! Other icons you may associate with our state are our flag, seal, song, among others.
Every autumn, our West Virginia hills are painted with bright reds, oranges, and yellows. Just thinking about these vibrant colors make us think about hot cocoa, cool nights, tailgating, spooky stories and everything pumpkin! We want young students to create one of a kind works of art inspired by the fall colors and themes.
Tamarack Youth Arts is seeking brightly colored original artwork, in any media, with an autumn theme, from West Virginia students, grades K-12. All work must be ready to hang.
