The last day to submit art to display in our show is tomorrow.

You may think, "I'm no artist!"

Ah, but you are. I've got 10 points that prove you are an artist:

1. If you garden, you are an artist. Take a photo of your garden (flowers or fruit or vegetables) and submit that in our Art Show.

2. If you take photos, you are an artist. Choose your favorite photo and submit that in our Art Show.

3. If you have kids or grandkids, you're an artist. If you can, spend some time drawing with them tonight or tomorrow and submit the art you all create. Our Art Show features the artwork of anyone affected by a caregiving situation, including children.

4. If you care, you are an artist. Take a photo of a time during your day that represents how you care. A snapshot of a caring moment is beautiful art to submit in our Art Show.

5. If you bake, you are an artist. Take a photo of what you bake (cookies, cakes, brownies) and submit it to our Art Show.

6. If you cook, you are an artist. Take a photo of your delicacies and submit it to our Art Show.

7. If you take a walk, you are an artist. Show us your way; take a photo during your walk and submit it to our Art Show.

8. If you enjoy nature, you are an artist. Take us with you to your favorite spot in nature with a photo that you submit to our Art Show.

9. If you daydream, you are an artist. Draw what you dream and submit it to our Art Show. (If you need more inspiration, just use any of the prompts from our Caregiving Art Show Contest.)

10. If you write, you are an artist. Bring us to your writing by taking a photo of where you write and what inspires you to write.

Our Caregiving Art Show showcases your creative side. It's also a great way to give back--proceeds from the Art Show benefit our CareGifters program and Caregiving.com. The fee to enter artwork in the two children's category is $10; in the adult category, $25.

During the art show, visitors will vote for their favorite art. Based on visitors’ ratings, we’ll award a cash prize to the art which receives the most votes in three different categories:

1. Family caregivers and carees ages 8 through 11; first-place prize is $30;

2. Family caregivers and carees ages 12 through 16; first-place prize is $50;

3. Family caregivers and carees ages 17 and above; first-place prize is $50.

To submit your art, just complete the the entry form, below. Deadline is midnight (whenever it's midnight where you live) on September 5. Learn more about our Fourth Annual Caregiving Art Show.
