Target Age Group:

Parental/Guardian Authorization Form

Purpose:

To engage the youth/kids of today who are confined to their homes due to COVID 19 with an opportunity to work on a creative project they can do while at home with the potential to contribute that artwork within our community.

Through creative expression using a medium of their choice, artists are tasked to create something that expresses their experience and viewpoint of the world of which they live in. Artwork submissions along with the artist bio, will be shared and promoted on our Careadon website and FB page. Artists will also have the opportunity to be paid if their submission is chosen for print to display within the company’s building.

Art is an expression of self, our environment, our dreams and our community. Through their eyes, we believe children provide adults with amazing insights of our world.

Our mission?

  • Companies such as Careadon Corp. would like to commission the youth/kids in our community to create artworks using any composition of their choice within their homes to submit to display in our businesses and communities.

  • To create an opportunity for our youth/kids to express themselves as well as their perspective of their experience through this never before experienced pandemic.

  • In addition, youth/kids can actively take part through their artwork as contributors in the fight against this devastating virus.

  • Being part of the solution can initiate a sense of pride through visual engagement and instil a sense of togetherness.

A Call to all Youth artists with or without experience:

We need art and we love and value our youth/kids! Starting with Careadon Village, currently in its construction phase of building a community for retirees 55+. The building has 163 suites four of which are to be show suites. The show suites will have a plethora of empty picture frames that need artwork to display. The company is prepared to support youth/kids who are willing to create artwork to fill these frames or to be shared online at the Careadon website or the Careadon Facebook page.

Artwork submissions will be accepted (happily). All approved submissions will be featured on our website, facebook page along with the artists first name and short bio. These accepted artwork submissions will be featured in our online community newsletters that goes out to our entire retirement community. Creating a bridge of communications between retirees and the youth within this community. Each art submission will be vetted before being placed on our Careadon Website and Facebook page. Any chosen artworks for print, we are prepared to pay a stipend for the right to display the art within the photo frames and featured inside the Careadon building.
