Visual Voices: Speak Up for Creativity

This year’s national art exhibition is the perfect way to showcase students’ imaginations. We want your students (K-12) to take the theme “Visual Voices: Speak up for Creativity” and create artwork inspired by the importance of speaking up for creativity in the world.
Here’s a thought starter:
Ask students to discuss what creativity means to them and why it is important in the world.
  • Compare and contrast a world without creativity and a world with it.
  • Write this description and illustrate the contrasting views.

Deadline for submissions is January 15, 2010.
A select sample of submitted artwork and “Dream Statements” will be exhibited at the U.S. Department of Education in Washington, D.C. and its offices around the country.
