San Diego, CA (PressExposure) February 16, 2012 -- Oopsy Daisy, Fine Art For Kids (www.oopsydaisy.com) has announced a contest featuring illustrator and author Jenny Kostecki-Shaw, in which participants have the chance to submit their own art into a prize drawing. Prizes for the drawing include reproduction canvas wall art, a growth chart, an autographed book by Kostecki-Shaw, and more.
Jenny Kostecki-Shaw, one of Oopsy daisy's artists, is also a talented children's book author and illustrator. Her most recent book "Same, Same but Different" is inspired by a popular Nepal saying that natives use to compare cultures. The book and its global message inspired the staff of Oopsy daisy to ask children to show them their thoughts on our world. Children ages 12 and under who are interested in entering the contest should create their own original works of art inspired by their travels, thoughts and ideas about the people and cultures of the world, or a real or imaginary pen pal. There are several different ways in which artwork can be submitted by parents; more information regarding all of the contest details can be found on the official Oopsy daisy website. The names of all eligible entries will be entered into a random drawing on Tuesday, March 13th and the winners will be announced Wednesday, March 14th via Facebook and also at http://www.oopsydaisy.com.
