Join dot-art Schools to celebrate creativity


The annual dot-art Schools inter-school art competition is a well-established fixture in the academic calendar as we launch its’ tenth year this autumn. The programme was established in 2012 in response to demand from local schools and the side-lining of the arts in the curriculum and to date over 8000 children from 481 schools have taken part. Carolyn Murray, dot-art Schools project manager said: “After a challenging year, in June we were thrilled to be able to host a face-to-face exhibition at the iconic Port of Liverpool Building and the online prize giving kindly hosted by our partners Edge Hill University on campus. We hope to be able to hold both the exhibition and prize giving in person next summer.” To mark dot-art Schools’ 10th birthday, we are introducing an optional theme for the first time. Climate change is THE issue of our time, so schools can choose to submit art work around this theme. They will also be announcing more green based offers and activities for schools throughout the year. dot-art is also launching Art Bytes its new, national programme for primary, secondary and SEN schools, combining an inter-school art competition with virtual gallery technology. It is working with a high-profile cultural venue in each of the nine regions of England to deliver Art Bytes. Its partner for the North West is The Whitworth Art Gallery, Manchester.
