|Art Contest Entries from East Tennessee|
Broad splashes of primary and secondary colors made a fun morning of painting for some of our East Tennessee friends. We hosted a young artists’ playdate as part of the Safer Chemicals, Healthy Families Art Contest. Handprints and broad brushstrokes created bold, somewhat abstract versions of a healthy future according to a toddler or preschooler.
My school-aged daughter, who is really into writing, created a more realistic version of herself along with the words, “I want our world to be clean.” Several little hands pitched in to create a mural that we stamped with “Our Future,” in hopes that any lawmakers who have a say in safer chemicals efforts will remember who their constituents really are.
Thanks to the Safer Chemicals coalition for providing some art paper and non-toxic children’s paints. The versatile paint is from Nature of Art, and is labeled “Eco-Friendly Water Based Non-Toxic Certified & U.S. Made.” Small artists’ canvases and paint brushes were supplied by FlourSackMama.com.
