Art Competition

The art competition is open to all Prep and Pre-Prep pupils.

The theme for the competition is “The Seasons”.

This can be interpreted in any way.

You can make a 2D or 3D piece of work in any medium, but it must not measure more than 40 cms in any direction. A3 or A4 paper would be ideal, but of course it could be square.

The closing date for this competition is 24th  February.

You must put your name and year group on the reverse of the work and deliver it to Mr Minter or to the tray in Pre-Prep.

There will be prizes for the best work and the chance for it to be entered into the competition for The Bourton Arts Festival in May. The winning pieces will be shown alongside the professional exhibition in the Village Hall for Oxfordshire Artweeks.
