The New Jersey Department of Education (NJDOE), in collaboration with Arts Ed NJ and the Art Educators of New Jersey, is pleased to invite New Jersey students to participate in the Hope, Healing, and Resilience through the COVID-19 Pandemic Art Showcase & Installation Project. Students are encouraged to submit one original piece of two-dimensional (2-D) art that conveys positive messages of hope, healing, and resilience.  


Selected artwork will be displayed in a digital student art showcase in spring 2022. The NJDOE also looks forward to enlivening its offices and buildings with pieces exemplifying the hope, healing, and resilience of New Jersey students throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.   

Students are encouraged to submit their artwork that conveys positive messages of hope, resilience, and perseverance through visual art. In developing their artwork, students are asked to consider the following guiding questions: 

  • How have I developed greater hope, healing, or resilience because of the challenges I faced during the pandemic?  
  • How can I use my art to convey hope, healing, or resilience for the future as I move beyond the challenges I have faced? 
  • How can I use art to help convey my experiences through the COVID-19 pandemic?
