There is not long left to enter dot-art Schools’ exciting competition. Beth Harvey tells us more about it and how pupils from the area can see their work on display at the Walker:
We’re looking for the Warhol of the Wirral, the Lichtenstein of Liverpool, the Hockney of St Helens, the Klimt of Knowsley, the Cezanne of Sefton and the Hirst of Halton!
As we bring the final schools on board this year’s dot-art Schools programme, we look forward to celebrating the achievements of young artists in schools across the Liverpool City Region.
It’s a difficult time for the arts in schools. Government cuts together with curriculum changes means culture needs to fight for a voice. We want art to become the heart of a school curriculum which is centred on creative thinking.
The dot-art Schools programme helps to nurture talent, and to raise the ambitions of students to explore creative career paths. The programme will take art out of the classroom and into the real world, exhibiting along side art history’s biggest names.
This is such an incredible opportunity for students across the City Region; to show your work in one of the country’s most prestigious art galleries is no small achievement.
The deadline for schools to sign up is 20th December 2013.
The competition is open to year 6 and year 9 classes within the Liverpool City Region.
