“Congratuations to each of the art contest winners,” says Brian Wayne, general manager of WonderWorks Orlando. “This contest is a great way to encourage the youth in our area to engage in art. We are happy that so many took the time to participate.”

Youth artwork submissions were collected through December 18, 2020, with the artwork going on display January 22, 2021. The art contest focused on the theme “Time to Think,” which encouraged young artists to think and express their thoughts through art. All artwork is unique in concept, design, and execution. The winning artwork will help expand the illusion art gallery in a special section created to highlight youth art.

Encouraging youth to express themselves artistically can have lasting benefits. According to the School Superintendents Association, the arts play an important role in human development, enhancing the growth of cognitive, emotional, and psychomotor pathways. Plus, they report the arts provide a higher quality of human experience throughout a person’s lifetime.

“At WonderWorks, we want to help kids explore, learn, and express themselves in healthy ways,” added Wayne. “We offer fun for the whole family and look forward to a great year ahead.”

WonderWorks Orlando will be offering the art contest annually, with submissions accepted each fall. Additional onsite and community programs include the WonderWorks WonderKids event, FLO-Art Florida Youth Art Gallery, science fair partnerships, online science information and worksheets and a homeschool program. WonderWorks Orlando also offers various STEM activities, including virtual learning labs, science fair partnerships, onsite exhibits, activities and more.
