Once again, the young artists of Cabbagetown are creating images to reflect the upcoming holiday season.
The Cabbagetown Residents’ Association sponsors and organizes the competition, which provides prizes of framed artwork and class pizza parties for the winning entries.
At least 15 classes from Sprucecourt Public School and Winchester Park Public School are participating in the contest, reports volunteer Lindsay Mathieson, who, is organizing the contest along with volunteer Trish Finkelstein. Judging is set to take place the first week of December.
Given the diversity of cultures represented in our schools, what “the holidays” look like to the children varies widely. See the winning entries from 2016.
This year, four Cabbagetowners who are artists or designers have volunteered to judge the entries: Celia Fankhauser, Kristie Rogers, Karen Whaley, and Betty White (no, not that Betty White!)
