School children across Scotland are invited to enter the 2017 Tesco Bank Art Competitions for Schools.
Working in partnership with Tesco Bank, the programme encourages thousands of children all over the country, from nursery to S3, to engage with artworks from their national collection and be inspired to think imaginatively and be creative.
Over 7,000 children take part in the Competition annually, enjoying the opportunity to get creative in the classroom and to let their imaginations and artistic flair loose. The standard of work was extremely high and in 2016 the 53 winning children from across Scotland attended the special prize-giving ceremony at the Scottish National Gallery. In addition, 12 schools are awarded with artist-lead workshops and 20 schools with grants for art materials to enable participation in future years and widen access to the competition.
Now open for entries with great new themes to get you started in this fourteenth year of the competition! Closing date Friday 5th May 2017.
