The Artwork: Teens will choose their choice of media, either drawing or painting. All materials needed will be available/provided to the artist. Artists must incorporate their work within the following theme: Objects/Animals Doing Human Activities. For example, you create a piece of any human activity but instead of a human being you are replacing the human with an object and/ or an animal. Be creative. There can be multiple scenes or a single scene of your choice.
