Art competition for schools
Working in partnership with the National Galleries of Scotland, the programme encourages thousands of Nursery to S3 children all over the country to get arty and embrace their inner Van Goghs!
By allowing children to express themselves creatively we aim to encourage their freedom of expression and instil in them a passion for art.
Over 7,000 children take part in the Tesco Bank Art Competition for Schools annually, enjoying the opportunity to get creative in the classroom and to let their imaginations and artistic flair loose.The 53 winning children from across Scotland attend a special prize-giving ceremony at the Gallery of Modern Art where their winning work is on display.
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.
We brought one of the winning pictures to life and surprised Megan with a flamenco dancing class.
To see what it means to the children who take part, their families and school we followed Annabel Wilson from Moniaive Primary, winner of the ‘Fabulous Food’ category (P1-3), on her journey to the awards.
More information about the competition can be found on the National Galleries of Scotland website.
