Lotus School for Excellence Presents Art Brings Hope
Aurora, Colorado – Lotus School for Excellence will present Art Brings Hope, taking place at Lotus School for Excellence on February 15, 2014 from 11:00 to 2:00, and featuring K-12 student artists.
Lotus is proud to organize and put on Art Brings Hope in Aurora for the first time. Art Brings Hope will bring together students from all over Colorado who have a passion for art. Students from K-12 will have the opportunity to create a painting/drawing and submit it to the contest where it will be judged by professional artists and art teachers. One winner will be chosen from each grade level (Elementary, Middle, and High) and win a $75 cash prize! The only catch? The art work must be on the theme of Hope. Afterwards, the paintings and drawings will be showcased in the Art Brings Hope. The entrance fee for the exhibition is $5, and all proceeds will directly go to the Denver Children’s Home, benefiting local children who suffer from poverty, abuse, neglect, and broken families. In this way, we would like to bring smiles onto the children’s faces and spread the light of hope into their lives!
“This is such an amazing opportunity to show everyone not only the power of hope, but also the power of art to spread hope and happiness! I’m excited to be participating in this contest,” said a high school junior who is working on her art work.
Art Brings Hope is a contest and exhibition that is being held solely for the benefit of Denver Children’s Home. Lotus School for Excellence, a public charter K-12 school that emphasizes S.T.E.A.M education, is proud to be organizing this event.
