During lockdown I have been writing a book based on artworks from children around New Zealand. Their artworks depicting life during lockdown.
Submissions are still open until the end of lockdown 3 so if you have any young creatives who would like to participate be sure to check out the NEWs item called The Social Distancing Children's Art Project.
As part of the project there was a competition for the front cover which was drawn on Friday 24 April 2020.
All of the artworks were of a high standard which made my job hard to choose one.
Congratulations to Lucy Edwards who is 10 years old from Ashburton.
Your artwork was chosen to be the cover for its colour and its clear design which captured in one artwork so much about what it has been like to live in lockdown during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Thank you so much to everyone who has sent artworks in to be included in the book. Keep the submissions coming.
