This is the first year we have done something like this, but it would be great if we could make it an annual thing.

Children’s Art Contest

As we are all at home for the foreseeable future we wanted to be able to help children connect with art in the build up to this year’s Arts Trail (hopefully!).
So we would like to run an art contest over the next couple of months.

There will be a simple theme of “AT HOME WITH….” which you can interpret in any way you like eg. At Home With My Pet, At Home With My Family or At Home With Something I Love…and any more you can think of.

Let your imagination run wild and get creative!

We are looking for you to produce a picture using any medium described below, and on any kind of surface, the choice is yours.
You do not need to frame it, just produce the picture as you would like.
Ideally, your picture should be at least A4 in size but you can go bigger if you wish.

We have three age categories and three prizes to give away
5 years & under - Play Colour Sticks set & a Play Doh Set
6-11 years - Winsor & Newton Galeria Acrylic Painting Set
12-16 years - Watercolour painting package

Your Children's artwork will be displayed at a venue during the Arts Trail
