Head Master's Art Competition

Posted: 22nd November 2019

In collaboration with the Art department our Head Master, Miss Louise Davidson, is inviting pupils from all sections to submit a piece of artwork for an internal competition.  The theme for the competition on this occasion will be ‘Spring’ and pupils are being encouraged to consider the school value of ‘Love’.  The Head Master, along with the Art department and selected staff members, will choose a winner from each section and so there will be 5 pieces selected in total, one from Early Years, Pre-Prep, Lower School, Middle School and Upper School.  The winners from each section will have their work put on display in the Head Master’s office and will receive official recognition in assembly. All entries will be displayed for an exhibition, the date to be confirmed.

Competition guidelines: 

The work submitted must be completed on a flat surface and can use any medium(s), for example drawing, painting, printmaking, collage, digital editing or photography.  Work must be a minimum of A3 and a maximum of A2 size.  This should be done at home and could be an extension or adaptation of a class project. 

The piece of work can contain any form of subject matter such as portraiture, landscape, still life or be a piece of abstract art.  You may wish to include a short piece of writing with your work to explain how it follows the theme of ‘Spring’ and ‘Love’.  

Entries can be submitted after the Christmas holiday and should be received no later than Monday 13th January 2020:

Middle and Upper School entries should be delivered to the Upper School Art room office. 

Lower School entries to be delivered to their class teacher.

Pre-Prep entries should be delivered to the Pre-Prep reception. 

Early Years entries should be delivered to the Early Years reception. 

Winners and special mentions will be announced early next term after the submission deadline and work will go up on display shortly after.
