Here is what you need to do:

Create a piece of art of your choice with the theme of a wave in a blue tone color scheme.  Use any material medium you would like – photograph, paint, colored pencils, crayons, markers, recycled materials, wood, paper, chalk, cardboard, titles, or whatever else inspires you.  

Take a photo of your artwork and email us at [email protected] or upload your digital photo to the NKEF Catch the Creative Wave folder and we will handle the rest. Be sure to read the guidelines and rules below. 

Submitted photos will be joined together to create a one-of-a-kind mosaic in the shape of our wave logo. 

Deadline for submitting your artwork is: June 4, 2021

Don’t miss this chance to be part of a unique art project that celebrates your creative side and encourages a community togetherness. Whether it’s sitting at the beach listening to the waves crashing on shore or being inspired by the materials you collected to create a one of a kind wave – we hope you’ll help us celebrate all that education allows you to express and the arts  “one wave at a time.”
