Art from the Heart: Kids thank the front lines

We invite children ages 13 and under to share drawings that salute, thank and celebrate metro Atlanta’s front-line workers. We will publish these heartfelt and hand-drawn pieces of artwork on AJC.com and in a special keepsake newspaper section later this summer.

We want to give kids the opportunity to express their creativity and gratitude to those who are serving our community and keeping us safe.

Please submit your artwork through the following form and check out the galleries below - we're accepting submissions through June 1. If you have any questions about Art from the Heart, please email us at artfromtheheart@coxinc.com.
