TURNING IDEAS INTO ART

Calling all Kids!  We have seen your artwork on the sidewalks and covering the windows of your homes all around our community -- and you have all been encouraging, kind, supportinve, inspiring, and just plain awesome!  Navigate would like to help spread your amazing messages and would like to invite you to continue to share all that creativity in a community-wide virtual art show and competition.

Navigate will present a new idea and creative challenge on the first day of every month.  You then create your art, take a picture of it and email it to us.  All submitted artwork will be posted in an online gallery on the Navigate website and winners will be selected each month by a guest panel of judges and shared via our social media outlets.  Each month there will be a chance to win fun prizes for every age group.
