Celebrate dot-art Schools 10th birthday
Start date: –
dot-art Schools are working in partnership with Edge Hill University to launch their 10th annual art competition for schools across Liverpool City Region and beyond. To mark this milestone birthday, dot-art and Edge Hill are looking to the future and the importance of sustainability by inviting children to create art themed around protecting the environment, to highlight the importance of looking after our planet. As usual participating schools can enter Yr 5 or Yr 9 student artworks on any topic with theme of “Protecting Our Environment” being optional.
If you are new to the competition here’s a quick run down of the details:
What is dot-art Schools?
- dot-art Schools is an interactive, online, inter-school, art competition, taking place annually and culminating in a public exhibition of the winning artworks and prize giving celebration for teachers, students and their families.
- The competition is open to all Primary (Year 5) and Secondary (Year 9) and SEND schools in the six boroughs of Liverpool City Region and near neighbours. It is designed to nurture talent, raise aspiration and take art out of the classroom into the real world.
