Kids Art Challenges

Monthly Challenge: Creativity Around the House

Every month we will have a new challenge that prepares you for the following months contest theme. These challenges help prepare you with ideas and materials for the upcoming competition! 

See below for details!

Challenge Details

In the spirit of the upcoming Earth day and the limitations due to COVID-19, this month we are challenging kids and adults to use materials around the house to create beautiful sculptures, mosaics, puppets or unique paintings using materials found around the house. 


We have tutorials, item lists, and step by step instructions that can help you develop your project, but the sky is the limit for the art you can create. Bonus points to projects made out of recycled trash or repurposed items! Let the creativity flow!


Artists (age 1-21) who submit their work will be entered into a monthly drawing to receive a $15 gift certificate to the AiM Gallery.


Submit art projects to to be selected and featured on the Kids Corner Page! We look forward to seeing your work! O
