Pablo Picasso once said that "the purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls.” When words fail us, art speaks. In this spirit, YJA Pathshala is having an art competition! Submit any form of visual artwork (e.g. drawing, painting, digital art) that represents any topic covered so far in YJA Pathshala, and emailing by June 10th. Include a short explanation of the art's meaning (2-3 sentences max) and the name of the topic that it relates to (this can be the title!)

The best artwork will become the cover picture for the YJA main Facebook page for one day, and will also be awarded an Amazon gift card! Good luck!
