Kids Virtual Art Contest

~ Restorative Arts Project (R.A.P.) ~

Reaching Children, Reaching Families & Restoring Communities 

The Pine belt Chapter of CEF in partnership with the Laurel Housing Authority is proud to present our Restorative Arts Project (RAP) which sets as its priority enhancing and expanding the creative voice of children in Laurel Mississippi through artistic expression. Our project recognizes that restoring young people can restore families, who will then restore communities. ​

All the children in grades preschool -12th, will be encouraged to present their favorite artistic work at a virtual art fair for their family and friends. At the end of the project, the art will be presented before their families and community members at a virtual art show/ contest for voting.
