#ShowUsYourArt Weekly Art Submissions - Week 12 THANK YOU CARDS

June 8, 2020

It’s the final week of #ShowUsYourArt, and we are so grateful for all of the mini-artists and their essential helpers who have provided us with so much beautiful and entertaining content during these tough few months. We all have someone or something that we are thankful for helping us through this lockdown, so now is the time to show your appreciation!

So as we wrap our art challenge up, let’s take the time to design a thank you card to all of those who have helped us through all this. It could be your family for providing for you, a worker who has persevered through the restrictions, your cat who has entertained and loved you, or even a fictional character who has whisked you away to a land of imagination. 

Simply take a photo of your child's artwork and email it to Paula at paula@draiocht.ie by the deadline each week. Tell us your child's first name & age (this may be posted on social media with your permission with their gorgeous artwork for all to enjoy).

Keep your artwork safe, as very soon we will have an exhibition showcasing all of the amazing artwork from all 12 weeks of #ShowUsYourArt!

Let's get creating! We are super excited for you to #ShowUsYourArt

You can see all of our THANK YOU CARDS entries in our Facebook Album HERE.
