About Judith's composition: The piece shows a frog that is looking hopefully at the rain and letting it bring out the colours in him. It should symbolise the message that we should all take the 'storms' in our lives and try to see the best in them, that mental health is largely about perspective and to keep a healthy mindset
Creativity Art Competition
Creativity Art Competition for the Art Materials Company is open to people of all ages (adults included) from 5 years of age up. They are working with charity partners- The Jack and Jill Foundation and Alone, for every entry they are donating €1. The theme for this year is 'Freedom In A Time Of Constraint' and they are hoping that people will take this as a chance to express how recent changes have given them a new type of freedom despite the new restrictions. They are encouraging everyone to give this a go whether they are an art student or not, teachers can enter too! They also have a collaboration category where two relatives collaborate on a piece of artwork so this is a great option for parents and kids, etc. Entry is completely free, and for every entry we are donating €1 to our charity partners. artmaterials.ie/art-competition facebook.com/art.materials.3
