A few weeks back, we announced our California Dream Art Show, in which readers and their families would submit artworks inspired by places in California. We launched this project to celebrate our partnership with Visit California, and inspire our audience to explore all the beauty the state has to offer.
Since then, we received tons of incredible submissions that blew us away. We’ve seen artists of all ages share drawings that span from technicolor crayon drawings of tulips in bloom to sketches of spooky cemeteries to atmospheric watercolors bleeding into a landscape.
We were especially impressed by the submissions from our younger readers, as well as many of our readers’ kids. It’s always impressive to remember that the Atlas community is composed not just of intrepid travelers, but of artists, too. Combing through these submissions has reminded us anew of all that California has to offer, from scenic landscapes to quirky art pieces, and everything in between.
Check out the amazing work that was submitted below and on the Childhood Rules in California hub —it may help you plan your next trip.
