Do you know a young artist? Submissions are now being accepted for the All Kids Included (AKI) district-wide student visual art competition open to all Miami-Dade students in grades K-12. Celebrating inclusion, empathy and understanding, the contest is held each year in conjunction with the AKI Family Arts Festival, an annual interdisciplinary community arts festival for children and families with or without disabilities. The AKI Family Arts Festival features live performances, interactive arts activities, student field trips, the district-wide student art competition and exhibition, as well as community resources for parents.
For the art contest, student artists are invited to submit original artwork depicting the contest theme and are asked to draw on the selected book for inspiration. Semi-finalists' artwork will be exhibited at one of three Miami-Dade County Public libraries and finalists' artwork will be exhibited during the AKI Family Arts Festival at the South Miami-Dade Cultural Arts Center. Winners and awards will be announced at the 10th Annual All Kids Included Family Arts Festival on Saturday, May 7, 2016.
The 2016 contest theme is "Celebrating Inclusion, Empathy and Understanding," inspired by the book, "A Boy and a Jaguar," by Alan Rabinowitz, illustrated by Catia Chien. The book is a true story that celebrates the strength, beauty and determination of the human spirit and standing up for those who cannot speak for themselves.For more information on the competition, including submission guidelines and deadline to submit, please click here.
