The Weston Park Foundation is inviting schools in Shropshire and Staffordshire to enter an exciting competition which will feature artwork by children in primary and secondary education with the opportunity to win a cash prize for their school funds as well as art materials for for themselves.
We have a sensational art collection in the House and are now on the look out for the next generation of budding artists to stop the crowds with their work with a chance to exhibit in the fabulous Granary Art Gallery on the estate in the Halls Young Artist Competition, generously supported by Shrewsbury based auction house, Halls.
The challenge this year is to produce artwork inspired by Summertime with the shortlisted entries featuring in an exhibition taking place in the Gallery throughout August. All shortlisted entries will receive a family ticket to come and see their works in situ and enjoy a day out.
First prize: £300 will be awarded to the winning Secondary school with the pupil winning brand new art materials
First prize: £200 will be awarded to the winning Primary school with the pupil winning brand new art materials
Second and third prizes winners will receive a Weston Park Family Annual Pass.
Works must be submitted through the school by sending digital pictures of artworks to Juliet@weston-park.com or by post to Halls Young Artist Competition, Weston Park, Weston-under-Lizard, Shropshire, TF11 8LE by Friday 26th June 2015.
The exhibition of shortlisted entries will take place from Wednesday 5th to Sunday 30th August in the Granary Art Gallery from 11am – 4pm daily which is free to enter.
