The Canadian Art Inspiration Contest For Grades K–12

The Canadian Art Inspiration Contest is a celebration of art from across the country, with Canada’s future artists at its heart. Open to students from Kindergarten through Grade 12, the contest invited young creators to submit artworks inspired by or responding to leaders in Canadian art history. Broadly configured, works in any media that engage with this theme were accepted when the contest launched in Spring 2021. Visit an online exhibition of the winners’ submissions here.

While submissions are now closed for this year’s contest, our activity ideas, curricular connections, and education resources are available year-round, in English and French, for free, and can be accessed here.
