AJA art students are participating in a national school wide art exhibition offered by Crayola.

The overall theme is: Empowering Students through Creative Leadership, while each grade level has an age appropriate theme.

Each student has the opportunity to explore their own personal vision, confront their fears, become collaborators and learn to balance priorities. Finalists in this art contest will have their original art project donated to the U.S. Department of Education to become a part of the permanent collection of children’s art on display in Washington, DC and the department’s regional offices.

Each student whose work is selected for the curated collection will receive $200 worth of Crayola products and a plaque featuring a replica of the student’s original artwork.


Kindergarten’s Crayola Art contest theme is: How do I solve problems?

We started with a discussion about: Who is a leader in your house and how does Mommy or Daddy show you that they are the leader? We went on to discuss who has a big brother or sister and how do they show us that they are leaders, we then talked about being the older brother or sister and how we can be leaders. After that we discussed how each of the children in kindergarten can be a leader. We then talked about how we as a leader can solve problems.
