Attention Parents! Does your child love being on the ocean? Do they love the beach? Are they crazy about art? If your child is 5 to 12 years old, the Maritime Museum of BC needs you! We are accepting artwork − be it a drawing, painting, sculpture or photograph − that represents what it means to live by the ocean in a maritime city. The artwork must include reference to the water or something nautical, such as kayaking or beach-combing, boating or fishing, etc. It can even be about the environmental, as long as it is related to the ocean. The chosen art will appear in our 16-Month School Calendar which will be printed and available for sale through the Museum.
Two top prizes of an Eagle Wing Whale Watching Adventure and lunch at Barb’s Place at Fisherman’s Wharf will be given. Submissions may be dropped off, mailed or emailed to the Museum no later than June 30th, 2012. Winners will be announced in July, 2012. Partial proceeds of the sale of this calendar will go to the SALTS Sail and Life Training Society, a nonprofit providing youth with life-changing adventures. All entries will temporarily be on display at the Museum after June 30th.
