Have you been inspired by Grayson Perry’s Art Club? Or maybe you’ve become an art teacher for your children at home?
After the success of our photo competition (see here) we thought we would run another creative competition. This time we want to see your ART! The theme for this competition is ‘wildlife within the Don Catchment’ and it can be in any medium. This could be a painting of a reed bed, drawing of an alder tree or collage of a fox taking a drink from the river. It could even be of something you’d like to see in the Don Catchment such as a beaver – get creative!
There’ll be two categories – ‘River Guardians’ (aged 16 and below) and ‘River Rembrandt’ (aged 17 and above). Please note we won’t be able to receive your entry in the post, instead to enter we would like pictures of your art sent in to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and remember to include your name, which category you’re entering, give your art a title and – if you would like to – include a description. Entries must be submitted by noon on Friday 12th June.
First, second and third tier winners for each category will win £50, £25 and £10 gift vouchers from www.jacksonsart.com for art supplies and we will display all entries in a virtual art gallery on our website.
