To celebrate the World Environment Day and the World Ocean week, with Radiooooo, No More Plastic and Amanda Sthers we invited all children to participate at the #fornature drawing contest from June 5th to 12th, 2020.
The theme was "Reconnect with Nature" and it challenged children to interpret the No More Plastic turtle (click here to see it) or one of the Little Plastic Monsters (click here to discover them) in the beauty of the ocean depths and say something meaningful about the connections between plastic waste and the health of our nature.
For each artwork, the children mentioned us which music best illustrates their creation. Music frees the mind and our emotions. It heals, soothes and invigorates us. It has the power to transport us to a time, a place, a feeling, a memory. Music is simply magical.
The artworks must have followed the competition theme, original in concept and design. Must have produced on paper and its restricted to the use of pencil, crayon, watercolor, ink, acrylic or oil paint.
