Art Competition - Term 1

Please see below the letter containing information about the art competition from Mrs Smith and Mr Brown!

Term 1 Art Competition   ‘Autumn’ Photography competition 

A big welcome back to you all. I am excited to get the term started with a brand-new competition based on the most colourful and vibrant season of all - Autumn.  

The aim of this term’s competition is to take a series of images that represent the word 'Autumn'. I would then like the children to print 1 –10 photos and display them in a creative way. This can be on a board, a canvas or even something 3D such as a wooden log, for example. This competition is photography-based but the children can use other media to display their photographs such as painting on top of images, collaging images together or sticking leaves on top of their images. There will be a series of workshops in art club for the children to try out new techniques.  Photographs can be any size and as always, if children need help with materials or printing, they just need to ask. 

Children can use the following ideas as inspiration: exploring nature, going outside and using the woods/ beaches, focusing on the changes in your surroundings and the weather, taking close-up images of things like ferns and leaves and acorns, or taking long distance images of trees in the park. 

The following resources can be used: 

  • Cameras 

  • iPads  

  • Canvas/ boards 

  • Phones/ a grown-up's phone (with permission) 

  • Polaroid cameras 

  • Paint  

  • Collage 

  • Pastels 

  • Paper A2/A3 

Workshops will be in the art room this term for the competition on Thursdays 12pm-1pm. 

Work must be submitted by Tuesday 31st October (after half term) with your full name, team name and age. There will be prizes and house points for first, second and third prize winners. House points will also be awarded for each key stage winner.  

I look forward to seeing the budding photographers we have in the school and how creatively the children display their work. If you have any questions, then please ask children to come and find us.  

Good luck,  

Mrs Smith and Mr Brown
