2014 ART CONTEST WINNERS
AFHE hosted our first art contest for Arizona homeschooled students in 2014. The theme was Celebrate America! in honor of the 200th anniversary of The Star Spangled Banner. Over 70 entries were submitted by homeschooled students and graduates from across Arizona. These entries were evaluated by a team of judges and narrowed down to 49 finalists. A second judging was completed to determine the winning entries. The original artwork of the finalists and winners was on display at the 31st Annual Arizona Home Education Convention July 11-12 at the Phoenix Convention Center. Photos of their artwork has been posted below for you to enjoy. The three art categories in this contest were Drawing, Painting, and Photography. The students range in age from 10 to 22. It is a pleasure to highlight the artistic abilities of these outstanding homeschooled students.
Art allows an individual to express creativity and to connect with others in a meaningful way. It is our desire to give Arizona homeschooled students the opportunity to share their work as we celebrate the great nation that we live in and the freedom we enjoy as Americans. We are thrilled to be able to highlight the skills, abilities, and artistic talents of Arizona homeschoolers in this way.
