You can see the Tesco Art Competition for Schools 2016 exhibition at the Scottish National Gallery in Edinburgh until 27 October 2016.
I was impressed by several of the entries. I thought the standard of the artworks was as good as many that I’ve seen in exhibitions by professional artists.
Below are my four favourites pieces on the trees theme.
I loved the horse below; the expression is perfect and the tangled blue mane is eye catching.
The individual rain clouds above the riders made me laugh.
The pensive portrait below is an ideal subject for the darkness and light theme.
The style of the animals featured below is reminiscent of cave paintings.
The circus themed group entry captures the excitement of the show.
The Tesco Bank Art Competition for Schools 2016 exhibition will move to the Borders General Hospital, Melrose from 1 November 2016–26 February 2017 and then head north to the Eden Court Theatre, Inverness from 3 March–27 April 2017.
