Young Artist Competition 2020
Part of the Youth Development Programme across Southern Scotland.
This competition is designed to support and encourage the development of fine art skills in Young People.
It is suggested that art teachers introduce the competition to their pupils in January 2020 and make this a project to produce a piece of art work for submission to the Schools competition in Aril, May or June. The winners are then invited to submit their art work to the district competition in September.
This competition aims to encourage young people to:
• Experiment with creativity within fine art
• Use traditional or contemporary methods of fine art
• Show interpretation of their chosen topic
• Express their ideas through the medium of fine art
There are 4 age groups: Junior Primary School pupils, Intermediate High School Pupils S1, S2 and S3, Senior High School Pupils S4, S5 and S6
Every year there is a theme. For 2020 it is “WARMTH”.
