‘Helping Hands/Healing Hands Art Challenge’ seeks K-12 entries


Does art have the power to relate a positive message to someone in need? How can you use your hands to help others? A new art challenge invites K-12 students to create a work of art using the theme of hands, and is open to artwork in any medium.

Pennsylvania College of Technology invites Pennsylvania elementary, middle and high school students to enter the Helping Hands/Healing Hands Art Challenge inspired by the new public television documentary film, “Working Class: Helping & Healing.”

The Helping Hands/Healing Hands Art Challenge invites K-12 students to create artwork using the theme of hands. Embroidery artist Amanda McCavour’s “Hands” has previously been displayed in The Gallery at Penn College.
