Thanks to Kristina on the Home School Share yahoo list, dd10 is entering another national art contest. Kristina heard about the contest and let me know after hearing about dd10 winning the other contest.
The new contest is in celebration of salmon and is sponsored by SOS, Save Our Wild Salmon.
Four winners will be chosen, one from each age category. The first place winners will have their artwork framed and displayed in Washington DC and be featured in the 2009 Celebrate Wild Salmon calendar. They will be invited to the exhibit in DC (which will run Feb. 15 through the summer). Second place winners will receive a $100 gift certificate to Patagonia.
I always thought salmon were interesting, and have wanted to do a unit on them. I guess I better put one together now and do it!
Anyway, dd10 choose to make her drawing from another book cover. This time the book was Salmon Stream by Carol Reed-Jones and illustrated by Michael S. Maydak. (Click on the book title to see the cover of the book at Amazon.)
Here is dd10's drawing, showing them as they should always be: wild, free, and doing what God instilled in them.
