We encourage our students to participate in art contests. The message our educators here give students is that just as you strive for excellence in art, you must try your best in everything you do. Creativity has the power to transform, improve, and revolutionize. Being creative and being able to learn are lifelong skills and can be used in everyday situations. The creative skills children have learned also apply to other subjects, increase self confidence and build a strong foundation for higher studies and future careers.
The annual EDI Media Children’s Drawing Contest announced the winners. 35 students from West California Academy of Art and Design won the awards. Angela Zheng won the 1st Place, Zinuo Li and Lucas Leung won the 2nd Place.
The drawing contest has been held annually for 24 years. This year’s theme is “Investing in the Future.” Children from the age groups of 3-5, 6-8, 9-11, 12-15 years old in Southern California are invited to participate and encouraged to draw in their originality, creativity and love for sports. The criteria of judging include creativity, color, the techniques of the drawing, and how related the content is to the themes of the contest.
