PlayMonster launches Spirograph National Art Contest

Families across the US are being invited to participate in the Spirograph National Art Contest for the opportunity to have their Spirograph art featured at The Strong National Museum of Play in Rochester, New York. 

Using the simple magic of pens, gears and paper, artists aged four and older are encouraged to create a unique design with any Spirograph product and add their own personal flair with colour or added materials.

The competition is open until 31 March. Six winning designs will be chosen by a panel of judges to be displayed at The Strong National Museum of Play on World Art Day (April 15, 2022). Winners will also take home an exclusive Spirograph Retrospective Prize Pack and a $400 Michael’s Gift Card to keep creating.

As part of the promotion, families are also encouraged to get their creative juices flowing by visiting Michael’s stores across the US for a free Spirograph event. On Saturday, March 26, 2022 from 1:00-3:00 PM CST, families will be able to try out various Spirograph products and take part in a demo to learn Spirograph tips and tricks.

Wendy Hartling, Director of Activity Toys at PlayMonster, says: “This household brand has delighted generations, including my own family, because of its ability to make everyone feel like an artist. Whether you’re eight years old or an adult with kids of your own, Spirograph brings out the creator in all of us. We know how proud kids feel when their art is displayed at home or at school. We want to celebrate these budding artists and give them the opportunity to potentially have their art featured at a National Museum on World Art Day.”
