Tile Art Contest

CAPITAL CAMPAIGN 1954 || 2014 || 2074

As you know, we are currently building the new Chadar Ochel (Dining Hall) at Camp Solomon Schechter. One of the finishing touches to the building will be a tile wall. In early 2018, everyone will have the chance to purchase tiles that were designed by Schechter campers!

But first, we need to create those tiles! Wouldn’t you love your art to be a permanent part of the building?  Starting sometime in early 2018 we will be selling tiles that were designed by Schechter campers.

We are looking for four tiles to be designed by Schechter campers.  Are you crafty? Do you like to design things?  Do you feel you have an artistic side just waiting to be seen?  We are looking for you to submit your ideas!

What you will do

Use your creative talents to decorate Schechter’s Chadar Ochel. We are looking for artists to design tiles that will be put up as part of our new Chadar. Submit your drawings by December 22nd to win one of four prizes. We are looking for four designs.

Participants : 2nd grade to 10th grade

Tips:  Use bold black lines (avoid too much detail and no shading) as the design will be etched onto a colored tile, like these examples. Your artwork will be used like the animal drawings above, and whoever purchases the tiles will place their information in the two lines of text below your drawing.

Prizes:  Four entries will receive a monetary gift.

What to submit:

  • Your artwork on a horizontal piece of 8 ½ x 11 paper (standard size paper).
  • Your name
  • Your parent/guardian’s name
  • Contact information for getting a hold of you and your parent, including an email and a phone number.
