Two of my fav resources, CVS Caremark’s All Kids Can CREATE program and VSA (the international organization on arts and disabilities) have joined together to offer young artists another great opportunity to see their work in action.

Here’s the scoop: CVS Caremark All Kids Can is calling all young artists to participate in the 2011 All Kids Can CREATE program with their partner VSA. This year’s theme, Imagination Across America, invites children to share their favorite daydreams through art.

Artwork submitted before the February 4, 2011 deadline will be featured in an online gallery and considered for a national touring exhibition debuting in Washington, D.C. in June. Each week the CVS Caremark All Kids Can Facebook page will feature a Submission of the Week from all 2011 entries. Find out more about that here.

Attention all art teachers: By submitting your students’ artwork to the VSA and CVS Caremark All Kids Can CREATE call for art, you’re eligible to receive $1,500 for use in your classroom. Up to five teachers will receive $1,500 each, based on the number of submissions from your class or school, the number of submissions from students with disabilities, and your answers to two short questions.

Submissions are open to children, ages 5-15, living within the United States (all 50 states and the District of Columbia.) For complete details and sample activities, click here.

I love it when good people join together to make great things happen for kids with special needs. Kudos CVS and VSA.
