The Warehouse Arts District Association Education Committee has been working on a project to create Art Tubs for Pinellas County Schools. WADA Art Tubs are a student directed independent activity that allows students to explore a subject with materials in a tub. There are tubs for math, science and language arts, and our WADA Art Tubs project aims to create one for visual arts, to be utilized in the elementary art classrooms for grades K-5.Our first WADA Art Tub project is a set of artisan-made architectural building blocks where students have the opportunity to create their own buildings, inspired by art-focused buildings in St. Petersburg,


We are looking for an artistically detailed rendering of these local 6 buildings: Dali Museum, Museum of Fine Art, Carter G. Woodson Museum, Royal Theater, Palladium, and Museum of American Arts and Crafts Movement. The payment to each artist selected is $400.

Image would be used in the creation of 12 tubs and would appear on the tub exterior at approx. 2 inches x 3 inches

Image would be used in high resolution form for publicity of this project in which the artists will receive credit

WADA would also reserve the rights to use this image in future duplications of this project.

WADA would not own the original artwork, or exclusive rights to the image.
