Coloring Contest Results: Coloring Contest Results: Christmas 2014
We had so many amazing and beautiful coloring pictures for our Christmas Coloring Contest. We were especially impressed with some of the amazing hand-drawn images.
PEOPLE'S CHOICE - Amelia, Age 17 - Boonville,IN
Amelia did a beautiful job coloring in this Christmas Eve scene. Her use of color and shade gives a real sense of the moment where Santa is caught out by a curious child.
Here's what Amelia said...
I'm just a normal teen that loves coloring (of course), old people (the more Grandparents the merrier), God Almighty (He died for me; how can I not?), Southern Gospel Music (kinda goes with the God thing), old movies (Barbara Stanwyck all the way!), art (bring on the canvas), chocolate (duh), and whatnot....Thanks so much! Keep up the good work, fellow Color-ers!
CHRISTMAS - Rowan, Age 8 - Hamilton, Ontario
Happy kids with their new toys! Rowan did a great job of coloring this picture in with bright cheerful colors.
MADE CHRISTMASSY - Cobie, Age 6 - Barrie, Ontario
HAND-DRAWN - Nicole, Age 16 - Kapolei
We're were blown away by Nicole's portrait of Santa. Just really amazing artwork.
Here's what Nicole said...
I don't think it matters whether Santa is white, black, asian, or etc. The real meaning of Christmas is what's important. Being with family and spending time with each other is what makes Christmas very merry.
WEEK 5 - Sarvesh, Age 8 - Cypress, CA
Sarvesh sleighed the competition in week 5, with this great colorful picture of Santa Claus.
Here's what Sarvesh said...

A lovely picture of Santa about to go down the chimney. We loved this use of shading to bring this night-time scene to life.
Here's what Emily said...
My name is Emily and I'm 10 years old. I am homeschooled and currently in the 5th grade. I take dance and I also love to tumble. I really love horses and I hope to be getting one of my own for Christmas this year. I have 2 dogs and 7 cats. I live on a farm in South Georgia where we raise cattle. I also love Christmas and especially anything to do with? Santa and that is why I chose that picture!
WEEK 3 - Nevada, Age 8 - Texas
It's great fun decorating the Christmas tree, and Nevada did a great job decorating this picture.
Here's what Nevada said...
I loves catching bugs. I also love jets, trains, and anything to do with NASA. I chose this picture because I love Christmas trees and giving and receiving gifts at Christmastime.
WEEK 2 - Mhegan, Age 9 - Katy, TX
We loved Mhegan's super-cute picture of Rudolph. Great use of vivid colors, and awesome drawing style.
