CreArt Canada 2019

Canadian Painting & Design Competition for Children and Youth


Topic: Family Portrait

Home is where there a cozy wooden house with rising cooking smoke in my dream; Home is a lamp that never goes out in my heart. A family portrait has recorded the wonderful moment of the whole family staying together, and captured the moments of growth that you have not noticed, all with full of love. Besides cameras, we could also describe all of those interesting family stories by drawing. Draw a family portrait when you have a new family member coming to your house - a lovely puppy; when your sister has successfully got enrolled to her ideal university; when you visit your grandparents in China with your parents; when the entire family goes to vacation...

You may also try to draw a family portrait from your imagination. Your imagination should not be limited to one‘’s own family. Think it in a broad sense, it could be a family portrait of cute animals, a family portrait of the global village, a family portrait of your favorite team...
