We grew up reciting and singing nursery rhymes. Most of remember at least one or two. If we have children, one or two expands to many. These rhymes originated to teach children and to enhance motor skills. The subject matter is wide and far ranging; from the plague and London Bridge to morals and industry. Quite a few nursery rhymes are commentary on political and social events. Whatever their origins, nursery rhymes have endured the test of time and have become a beloved part of childhood. EBSQ’s show “Nursery Rhymes Illustrated” offers a chance for artists to bring a favorite nursery rhyme to life.
"Nursery Rhymes Illustrated" is open to all media. Any and all materials may be used to create your entry. An artist’s statement that includes the nursery rhyme illustrated in your entry is required. We also suggest that you include some insight as to what prompted you to choose your nursery rhyme as well as information on the process and materials used to create you entry. We also encourage you to include detail shots of your entries. This will allow the viewer to full appreciate your work as small details can be lost in an online environment.
Eligible entries must meet all points of the prospectus. If you have any questions regarding the prospectus and its requirements, please send them to firstname.lastname@example.org.
