Schools Art Competition 2017

Schools Art Competition 2017

01 February 2017
The Scottish Fisheries Museum invites all children in Fife aged 3 - 14 to take part in its annual Art Competition!

To tie in with our upcoming temporary exhibition The Navigatio (4th March – 23rd April 2017), by artist Alan Watson, this year’s theme is Journeys.

Children can enter the competition via their nursery or school. 

We have six different categories for ages 3-14 years old. Entries can include any 2D and 3D materials such as painting, drawing, printmaking, photography, collage, textiles, clay working and so on.

Winners and their parents/teachers will be invited to a special prize giving ceremony as part of the museum’s Open Day on 27th May 2017. All winning entries will be exhibited, along with a selection of other submitted artworks, in the museum’s Tearoom from the same date. 

For further information about the competition's rules and details on how to enter, take a look at our Competition Information Pack or contact the museum's Learning and Access Officer on 01333 310628 or 

This year the museum will be running a series of school art workshops which are suitable for P1-7 classes. To find out more take a look at our P1-2 Schools Pack, our P3-5 Schools Pack, or our P6-7 Schools Pack. We have also put together an Inspiration Pack which contains images and information about a series of items from the museum to help get you started.
