Creativity, color, content!
It was enlightening to discover the diverse media that the hundreds of young artists used in their Chanukah art creations: crayons, markers, watercolors, tempera paints, fabrics, metallic materials, fancy papers, beads, balloons, computers.
Entries came from 14 cities: Denver • Aurora • Boulder • Centennial • Westminster • Colorado Springs • Englewood • Evergreen • Greenwood Village • Longmont • Littleton • Parker • Steamboat Springs. Some entries came from Bozeman, Montana.
All entries are numbered by an independent party and then judged blindly. The judges do not know the names, schools or synagogues of the entrants.
