In 2012 the Art Competition for Schools celebrates its ninth year, and we are delighted to welcome a new title partner. The Tesco Bank Art Competition for Schools hopes to inspire children across the country with the National Galleries of Scotland’s superb collection of artworks.

Over 30,000 children from all over Scotland have participated since 2004.

An exhibition of the winning works from 2011 is on show at Raigmore Hospital, Inverness until 17 January and at Aberdeen Royal Infirmary from 20 January – 24 May 2012 so why not go along and check out the talent on display?

This year’s winning works will be proudly displayed at the newly refurbished Scottish National Portrait Gallery.

With six categories to choose from, clear links to Curriculum for Excellence and fabulous prizes to be won, make sure not to miss the closing date of 4th May 2012.

As part of our partnership with Tesco Bank we’re aiming to widen accessibility to visual art, with a tour of school roadshows to be announced later in the year.
