Art Contest 2019

Guide for CES Student Art contest:

Contest is open to all Grade 4 – 6 Students:

    • The Theme will be “Canadian Landmarks …….”


  • What special symbols or places do you associate with Canada? Is it the CN Tower, Niagara Falls, Buffalo Jump, Banff, Jasper or the B.C. or Maritime Coast?  Do a little research and pick your favorite for your art submission.


  • The choices are many as long as there is some link to the theme.
  • Winning works will be displayed in the outer office area of the school.
  • Paper sizes should be no smaller than 8X10.  Drawing and Watercolor paper are available. If you need the paper please see Mrs. Sikliski.  
  • Art for display will be framed by CES.
  • You may use watercolor, pencil, charcoal, felt, pencil crayon, acrylic, ink, or a combination.
  • This would need to be done on your time and all entries are due the first week of May 2019
  • Mrs. Sikliski will be available at recess break for advice,  guidance or direction
  • All entries must have your full name and the month and year (mm/yy) printed in pencil (example: Bob Smith  04/19) at the bottom right or left corner of your paper.
  • All entries must be neat and in appropriate condition (no tears, creases or improper erasures or smudges).
  • This must be your own work.  Guidance and suggestion is fine, but the actual work on the paper must be yours.
  • Great art related prizes, and most important of all, a lot of fun!

Your amazing work will be on permanent display at CES.  Who knows, one of these days you may want to return and show it to your kids.
