To link with both The Beatles and Liverpool’s ’50 Summers of Love’ festival, our Arts and School Councils came up with a brilliant idea for a Summer Art Competition which pupils could do at home with their families. In our ‘Design a Submarine’ competition, children were asked to add their own unique design and style to The Beatles ‘Yellow Submarine’ outline. Our councils then judged the competition and awarded the prizes.

 

We also created our own Spectrum Submarine from small-scale subs made by every child in the school.

We entered dot-art Schools Liverpool (‘an interactive, online, inter-school, art competition’) for the second time in 2017 when the judges selected the artworks by Grace, Luke and Maisie as our top 3. The public voted and chose Grace’s ‘Lost Soul’ as their favourite which became part of the exhibition at St. George’s Hall.

 

The competition winners were announced at a prize-giving ceremony and we were thrilled (and very proud!) when our very own Grace was announced as the overall winner of the primary school category!

 

 

Grace McKeown from Knotty Ash Primary School won the Year 5 award for her piece "Lost Soul". Her prizes were:

· Family day out for 4 at the Albert Dock, including lunch, tickets to the Beatles Story and the Magical Mystery Tour!

· Tickets to see the latest exhibition at Tate Liverpool

· £50 worth of vouchers to spend at Rennies Art Supplies.

· Personalised Tangle Teezer hairbrush featuring their winning art work.

· FOR THE WINNING SCHOOL- £250 worth of vouchers to spend at Cass Art.

We entered dot-art Schools Liverpool for the first time in 2016 when the judges selected the artworks by Tami, Holly and Finn as our top 3. The public voted and chose Finn’s ‘Red Skull’ as their favourite which became part of the exhibition at St. George’s Hall.

 

‘dot-art Schools 2016 is an interactive, online, inter-school, art competition, taking part on an annual basis and culminating in an exhibition. Open to primary (year 6) and secondary(year 9) schools in the Liverpool City Region, it is designed to nurture talent, raise ambition, and take art out of the classroom and into the real world. With the current threats to creative subjects on the national curriculum, dot-art Schools offers a way of keeping young people engaged with the arts, allows them to see a creative career path, and encourages them to attend exhibitions and engage with culture, outside of school.’

 

‘Each school creates and selects 25 pieces of student work which they feel best represent the talents of their students. These art works are submitted to their dot-art Schools page then put on display to the world via the dot-art Schools website (schools.dot-art.com). A panel of art experts will select the top 3 artworks from each school. Students from all the schools in the programme, as well as the general public, will then be able to vote for their favourite piece of art from the judge's shortlist. During the Summer term, an exhibition will be held at a gallery showcasing the artwork with the most votes from each participating school. The overall winner and two runners up in both age categories are chosen and announced at the prize giving ceremony.’
