Bideawee is encouraging students of all ages to cultivate their artistic talent as they express their love for animals during the 7th Annual Love Your Pet Art Expo. Beginning Friday, January 2, 2015 through Sunday, February 1, 2015, students in grades one through 12 can submit their entry to the pet-themed contest at Bideawee.
The contest is divided into two groups depending on the student’s age. Artists in grades one through eight can submit artwork created on any medium including drawings, paintings, or sculptures. Entries must include a completed submission form and can be mailed or dropped off at the Adoption Center at Bideawee. Artists in grades nine through 12 can submit photography and video entries for Bideawee’s online Love Your Pet Art Contest.
The first 300 art entries from students in grades 1 through 8 will be displayed at Bideawee’s Art Expo starting Monday, February 9th through Sunday, February 15th. Artwork from students in grades 9 through 12 will be displayed online also during that time period. Top entries for both contests will be chosen by the public. Entry to the Bideawee Art Expo is a $5 donation, which will assist the continued care for pets in need at Bideawee.
Bideawee is located at 118 Old Country Road in Westhampton. For more information, call 866-262-8133 or visit www.bideawee.org.
