Hold an Addiction and Art Contest

Art can be a powerful expression of emotion around the theme of drugs and addiction. Hold an Addiction and Art Contest

  1. Teen artists can paint or draw images that represent addiction or living around people who use drugs. Display entries at a school art show. Kids can vote on their favorite.
  2. Ask teens to use their phone cameras to take images related to the theme of drug use and addiction, and then create a collage with their photos. Display on a page on your school’s Web site.

For ideas and a toolkit on how to hold an Addiction and Art show, go to the Web site created by artists who support NIDA’s mission: http://www.addictionandart.org
