Artfully Done

Grab your camera, sketchpad, easel, or pen tablet (preferably one made by Wacom) and snap, sketch, paint or “pen” something new for Wacom’s “A Thousand Forests” contest. Although the competition is inspired by Ralph Waldo Emerson’s famous line – “the creation of a thousand forests is in one acorn” – your artwork doesn’t need to be poetry, nature or nut-related, it just needs to be, um, artful.

For every entry it receives, Wacom will donate $5.00 to the International Child Art Foundation (ICAF), whose mission is to integrate the arts with science, sports and technology for the development of children's innate creativity.

A few of the top entries so far include “Portrait of Sal,” “Bunnicorn,” “Guardians of Sherwood,” and “Bewbits the Cat.” You’ve got until November 30 to submit your own work of art – along with a brief description - and have a shot at winning an all-expenses paid trip to the Santa Fe Photographic Workshops in gorgeous Santa Fe, New Mexico.
