What Do the Colorado Outdoors Mean to You?

SOLE’s mission is to connect kids to the outdoors…so GET OUTSIDE with your family and create art that reflects your experience.

Students can submit original artwork that reflects Colorado wildlife, landscapes, how they like spending time outdoors, or they can depict what the Colorado outdoors means to them graphically imaginatively.
