Vans invites all public and private high school artists to participate in their eleventh annual Vans Custom Culture, an art contest designed to “inspire and empower high school students to embrace their creativity through art and design and to bring attention to diminishing arts education budgets.”
Registration is open now through Jan. 31 and the grand-prize winner of $75,000 will be announced in mid-May.
Whether you have no idea what to get your nieces or nephews, your scrambling to do last-minute Christmas shopping, or you’d rather save a little money, nothing beats giving the art of crafting for Christmas.
Whether you’ve got a knack for arts and crafts or not, creating your own cards is a great way to unwind on a free afternoon. Plus, the end result is something so unique and meaningful. Even those of us who can barely manage to draw a stick figure will end up with a card that someone will appreciate, if only as an A for effort.
