Children’s Art Competition – Life, Peace and Nothing Else
Inspired by our brand-new exhibition of work by 9-year-old Iranian artist, Kimiya entitled Life, Peace and Nothing Else, we’re running a Children’s Art Competition!
On the subject of Life, Peace, and Nothing Else, artist Kimiya has created nearly thirty acrylic on canvas paintings to emphasise, in her words “the importance of peace for all inhabitants of the earth, especially children.”
Primary school children aged between 5 to 11 can enter a piece of artwork related to the theme of peace and inspired by the exhibition. The museum will be encouraging schools to get involved as well as families who can visit every Wednesday – Friday during the summer holidays.
The winner will receive a £20 voucher, a goody bag from the museum shop and a free Art of Peace education session at the museum for their entire class! The Lord Mayor of Bradford, Councillor Doreen Lee has been invited to judge the competition alongside the museum’s Curator and there will be a special event where the winner is announced.
The Deadline for entries is 31st August and entrants must be aged 5-11 (primary school age). Artwork can be up to A3 paper size or smaller and must have Name, Contact Details and School Name on the back. Artwork can be sent to The Peace Museum, 10 Piece Hall Yard, Bradford, BD1 1PJ.
A selection of shortlisted artwork will be put on display in the gallery and artwork can be collected from The Peace Museum anytime until 31st October.
