We went to the reception for "SALAD DAYS!" .... a juried art show for local school age children. (The term salad days refers to green, inexperienced artists.) Being in a juried art show means that in order to even get in the show, your artwork is judged. (sort of a prejudging before the judging kind of thing.......)
Last year, they had over 200 entries competing for the 50 spots in the show.
The artwork we saw was AMAZING. I was in awe of the amount of creativity I saw.
Curly Girl wasn't in art last year so we didn't know about it to apply. This year, we were all so sick that I forgot about it.
Her art teacher reminded me the day before deadline so we grabbed 3 pictures and rushed down to present them.
We were SO excited when we got the card in the mail saying Curly Girl's PANDA got accepted into the SHOW! Here she is with "Bamboo."
Here she is with her art teacher and the Mayor, he was presenting the medals and ribbons. Curly Girl received a certificate of accomplishment, a medal and t shirt.
