River City Youth Foundation’s Holiday Card Contest
Expressing hope and joy for the holiday season through the eyes of a child
Join us in celebrating the holiday spirit by purchasing a package of hand-crafted Christmas cards from the children of Dove Springs. The cards feature the artwork of five winners from River City Youth Foundation’s annual children’s holiday card contest. From a whimsical Santa Clause to a self-portrait, to a touching family moment, this package of cards is sure to bring a smile to your face (and whoever you send them to!) Just one package of holiday cards sold feeds a child at RCYF for a month!
How did we produce such an amazing spread of pure creativity and holiday zeal? Simple. We asked the children to recreate a memorable holiday moment and to express their joy for the holiday season through art. The winners were selected by a panel of judges from the art and education community.
River City Youth Foundation would like to thank the following judges:
- Federico Archuleta, Artist http://www.graffitiwestern.com/
- Henry Gonzalez, Artist, South Austin Museum of Popular Culture http://www.samopc.org/
- Priscilla Martinez, Program Director, P-16 Initiatives, Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board http://www.thecb.state.tx.us/
- Melissa Ortiz, Program Support Specialist, Mexic-Arte Museum http://www.mexic-artemuseum.org/
- Emily Weerts, Arts Writer, Austinist.com
By purchasing a package of eight cards for $20, not only do you contribute to a worthy cause, you also have invested in unique and festive Christmas cards not found anywhere else in the world.
The children’s enthusiasm for the project can be seen in each image and will warm your heart. The card offers a heartfelt holiday greeting on the inside and you also find a description of what inspired each one-of-a-kind design. Give back to the community as well as the earth this Christmas—we made sure each card is printed on recycled paper.
For a limited time, save $5 and purchase a set of cards for $15.
