From September 15 – October 15, we celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month. You can learn more about it here.

We’re not done celebrating just yet! In fact, Primavera has a Phoenix Art Museum Membership pass to give away to one Primavera student. What you have to do? Send us some Hispanic Heritage-themed artwork.

What Kind of Artwork Should I Send?

We want to see your artwork relating to Hispanic Heritage. Maybe it’s a painting of an ancestor, a digital drawing of famous Hispanic historic figures, a poster with some facts, a video of you explaining what Hispanic Heritage means to you, or anything else you can think of!

How Do I Submit?

You can draw/paint/etc and take a photo of your artwork, or submit a digital drawing/videos to [email protected] by Wednesday, October 6 at 5 p.m. If the file is too large, you can upload to Google Drive, iCloud, DropBox or YouTube and send a link to the same email.

We will email the winner the following day (Thursday, October 6). Whether you win or not, your artwork will be showcased on the blog here! We hope to see lots of artwork to truly celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month.

Best of luck! If you have any questions, feel free to email [email protected].
