Blick Art Materials

This new Mixed Media Contest invites students in grades K-12 to express their experiences and accomplishments through art. As educators we are aware of the enduring benefits art provides students — creativity, confidence, communication, and more — now it’s their turn to speak out! Participants will create a work of art and an accompanying artist’s statement that completes the following sentence: “With Art I Can . . .“
