dot-art Schools has launched their online, inter-school art competition for 2016/17, which culminates in an exhibition of the winning artworks in the city centre.
The competition is judged by arts professionals who shortlist entries and the public vote on-line to select the winners. The competition is open to both primary (Year 5) and secondary (Year 9) schools in the six boroughs of the Liverpool City Region. It is designed to nurture talent, raise ambition, and take art out of the classroom and into the real world.
Since 2012 over 2,700 children from over 166 primary and secondary schools in the Liverpool City Region have participated.
dot-art Schools guest judge and past president of the National Society for Education in Art & Design, Susan M Coles, said: “Schools are under such pressure these days, so events like this are so very important – they highlight and showcase, celebrate and share…”
Interested schools need to sign up by 21st December 2016 and can view online at http://schools.dot-art.com
