I shrimply can't believe the amount of art that flooded in on The Third Wave! There are parrots with pirates and a pirate who is a parrot, beards, boats, sea buddies and even a skipper! If I was Salmon Cowell I would have to say that Erin's (2B) wild eyed pirate with snake tattoo is one of my favourites! What image would you pick? They are all jawsome so check out all the creativity!

Don't forget the Share the Love Art Project is back for 2021 here.

And the March of the Monsters Art Challenge is also coming back.... and you guessed it... it starts in March.

Until then stay creative and keep your heart up!
