Our Art Contests Serves Many Purposes
Art Contests were begun as a fun way to expose the children to art, and to get them involved. Theses kids work very hard at school, afternoons are spent with Tutors, and even more classes. They need a break with a fun activity. Our Art Contests has proven to be a success! The children eagerly participate. What we have found is:
- Helps bring out the creativity and hidden talents of the children
- Provides a sense of accomplishment
- Instills confidence
- A fun learning experience
- Creates excitement at the possibility of winning!
For our most recent contest, Dawn, a volunteer at Warm Heart from Singapore, introduced the children to Nagomi Pastel, a form of Japanese art healing founded in Japan
Below are the top 3 results of our contest. To see all of the drawings, and a video on how to do Nagomi Art visit our Nagomi Art Contest Archive.

Become an Art Contests Patron
When we run our art contests we offer a small amount of prize money for the top 3 winners, and we usually have 2 age/ability categories. First Place wins 300 baht ($9.00), Second Place wins 200 baht ($6.00) with Third Place receiving 100 baht ($3.00).
One of the most touching moments was when a young boy received his third place award. This particular boy comes from a very difficult background and from the look on his face when we announced his name was priceless. He was stunned, and then he simply glowed.
We would like to run contests more frequently, and expand our horizons. We want to introduce new categories, such as short essays, poetry short stories, photography, and even short videos.
