Art Contest: Architecture or Sculpture

Our cover this month is inspired by the colorful mosaic art style of Anton Gaudí—the artist in the “The Artist and the Donkey.” Gaudí devoted his life to creating beautiful works of architecture and sculpture, such as the spectacular Sagrada Familia church in Barcelona with its eighteen soaring spires and sculpture of the Sacred Family riding a humble donkey. For this month’s contest, we’d like to see your best drawing or design of an inspiring work of architecture or sculpture.

Maybe you will be inspired to draw something from history—a medieval castle or Renaissance cathedral, or architectural wonders from ancient Rome, or India, or Egypt. Perhaps you will capture a famous artist putting the finishing touches on his or her sculptural masterpiece. Or you might draw a modern skyscraper or football stadium or bridge. Maybe you will design something that exists only in your imagination, like the energy-efficient house of the future, or a memorial fountain commemorating an important event or person, or the treehouse of your dreams. 

Whether you draw a futuristic city on another planet, a cathedral illuminated by stained-glass windows, or a super new doghouse, everybuggy will be busy redesigning Cricket Country as they wait to enjoy your best drawing or design of an inspiring work of architecture or sculpture.
