Weather Art

Weather Art – DUE TO COVID-19, we are opening up the age range for weather art for ages 4-9. To keep things local,  publication priority will be given to children who live or go to school in Hampshire County, or one of these towns: Holyoke, Ashfield, Conway, Shutesbury, Sunderland, Leverett, Whately.

Educators:  We use artwork by local children to illustrate our daily weather forecasts on the front page of every day’s Gazette!

Each weather picture selected for use is printed in full color. The student’s name and school are also included. Pictures should be done in color using crayons, magic markers or colored ink pens. Bright colors are appreciated, and number two pencil will NOT show up. There is no limit to the number of times you can send in your students’ work.

The front page editor, who chooses the art, tries not to publish the same child’s work twice, to give other children a better chance to be published.  (Of course, the weather itself dictates which art can be used on any given day.)

GET AN ENTRY FORM HERE or just use a standard piece of white paper.
