Thank you to all of our wonderful judges, it was a tough competition between all of the finalists! Congratulations to the artists below:
Senior (Ages 15-18)
Artistic Statement: The painting is done in mixed medium: acrylics and resin, on a flat canvas 16”x12”. I take the clean water that I can shower with for granted. After a long and stressful day, a shower means relief and relaxation to me. It mitigates the anxiety of my day and washes away all the pressures. The man in my drawing is my interpretation of a euphoric moment in the shower. The smile on his face is emphasized to show how wonderful water can be as an everyday part of a person’s day.
Artistic Statement: Humans, plants, and animals alike depend on water and are even consisted of water. A simple bottle of water contains much more than what one would normally think; it contains the very essence of life.
Artistic Statement: Every life on the earth depends on water, in other words, water makes a life come alive!
Junior (Ages 10-14)
Artistic Statement: Water is wonderful because we can use it to generate electricity, grow crops, wash things and have fun. Without water none of us will be here; not even the other creatures that live on earth. And that is why water is wonderful.
For me, water means life.
rtistic Statement: Think about the people who need clean water. Some countries need help. We have to change that.
rtistic Statement: The earth needs more fresh water, and the drop of water symbolizes what the world would be like if there was more fresh water for people in developing countries, and in need. Water should be a right, and not a priviledge, but for alot of people it is.
