Denver Philharmonic Orchestra Monet Challenge Submission Form

In celebration of the upcoming exhibition, Claude Monet: the Truth of Nature, the Denver Art Museum and Denver Philharmonic Orchestra are excited to announce an opportunity for kids 18 and younger to create their artworks inspired by the iconic artist.

From August 2 to September 15, the Denver Art Museum will accept digital submissions through the link below.

A selection of submissions will be featured at the Denver Philharmonic Orchestra concert, First Impressions: Music & Monet, as a brilliant backdrop to specially chosen French music selections. All participants will receive up to four 30% off tickets to the concert, occurring on October 4, 2019 (kids 12 and under are free).

Adults—here is where you come in. Do you know a kid 18 or younger who loves art, paints colorful landscapes, or is inspired by picturesque outdoor scenes? Please help them to do the following:

  1. Scroll through the Monet works on the exhibition page.
  2. Create a unique work of art (painting, sculpture, drawing, collage, etc.) inspired by Monet.
  3. Snap a photo of the artwork following these specifications: 1920 x 1080 px, <3mb.
  4. Fill out the form below and upload a photo of the artwork to complete the submission.

Note that you will receive an autoreply message to confirm receipt of your submission.

As this is a challenge, not a contest, the concert selection will include submissions from kids of different ages, working with various media. The purpose is to encourage kids to draw their inspiration from Monet’s work and enjoy creating something new.

To be considered, the submissions can only be digital; works of art submitted in person will not be accepted. Please, only one submission per child. Claude Monet: The Truth of Nature opens October 21, 2019.

Merci!
