CALL FOR ART: Kid’s Art Walk: Beyond My Wildest Dreams

Make.Shift opens an invitation to all artists in our community to create a piece of art inspired by the work of some very talented kids. The exhibit will display these works by students and local artists side-by-side through May. Every year, Make.Shift Gallery celebrates Kid’s Art Walk in May. This year, we’ve partnered with Cedar Tree and Sammish Woods Montessories and asked 5th to 7th-grade students to create artistic renderings of their most outrageous dreams!

If you would like to be one of the artists involved we are currently asking people to sign up! This is one of our most fun and imaginative shows throughout the year and we would love to have you share with us in the excitement!

How to submit:

Email: gallery@makeshiftproject.com by Sunday, Mar 29th, 2020

Disclaimer: NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND! We don’t want any kids left without their work being re-imagined. Remember this art walk is ultimately for the joy and encouragement of our child artists, so if you aren’t confident you will be able to complete your work by the due date, please reconsider signing up.

In your email, you must include:

Your name, phone number, and the number of works you would like to complete. (Some artists signed up to get paired with multiple students last year)

Soon after you will receive an email including a digital packet with an assigned student artist’s work and artist’s statement to inspire your original work. Any medium is welcome!

Your work should be completed and submitted physically by Sunday, April 26th, 2020

Then, come have a party with us on Art Walk night, Friday, May 1st, 2020

The show will hang through the month. Artists must pick up their pieces on Sunday, May 31st, 2020
