Young Artist Submissions

Young Artists Get Published


Be a chosen youth who has their art published in an educational resource called the Sacred Storybook.

Open for submissions June 20 – July 30, 2020

Wild Craft Play ‘sCool, is revamping their children’s storybook to enhance the learning experience for children ages 8 and up.  Wild Craft Play is a role-play, nature-based in-person program that is as fun as a videogame, designed with strategy game-play that hooks children in and leaves them wanting more.  The Sacred Storybook is how the whole program starts.

In collaboration with Scrapbook Garage in Parksville, who is working on a prototype for a more compact and functional book, and

Lindsay Ford from Bread+Clutter, Jamie is calling for art submissions to revise the Earth Charter pages of the book.

Your submission of art will enhance this book and the experience for thousands of children. This book was created by founder Jamie Black and a child named Carmanah when she was 11 years old, nearly 9 years ago. Wild Craft Play The Game, has brought wild wonderment to hundreds of children, youth and adults since 2008. It has been played with groups of 16 or more children, ages 8 and up, designed for at least 8 weeks of engagement or more.

Initially this program was created with children, for children, to re-connect them with the Earth, now it is a multi-disciplinary experience that teaches about anti-bullying, as well as reaches all of the BC core competencies and is a model designed to meet some of the BC curriculum, namely, Grades 3, 4 and 5; physical and health education, math, financial literacy, science, socials, english, drama, environmental education, art and music. For anyone who facilitates the game, one of the core intentions is to help children play more gently on the Earth, making decisions for the Earth, and for our future.

When this book is published, it will become an educational resource to any adult who works with groups of children ages 8 and up. Join the movement. Become a Wild Craft Play Facilitator.
