About The Event

The Walter Anderson Museum presents Walter Anderson's Creatures from the Deep Children's Art Show. Children in grades 4-8 are invited to submit their artistic interpretations of creatures of the sea, in the spirit of Walter’s many Gulf Coast inspired paintings, prints, and sculptures. Aquatic-themed costumes are strongly encouraged on the day of the event. For questions, contact Tony DiFatta at Sponsored by Dickie Roberts and Dr. Edward Aldridge.


Work depicting sea creatures in all media is welcome.

Work must be original work by the students (no coloring pages).

2D work must be no larger than 8.5 x 11 inches, roughly the same size as the typewriter paper Walter used for many of his Horn Island watercolors.

Limit one entry per student.
