YAMSEN:SpeciallyMusic Art Competition 2019

The theme this year is Planet Earth

Entries to the art competition should be either two-dimensional pictures, no bigger than A3, or, this year we would also like some 3D entries made of mostly recycled materials [limited to no more than 15 per school/centre. Please. This is an experiment!].

Most important, please note: only one entry per person.  Schools, please do not send in class sets, but select your best from them.


Choose from the following themes:

1 Listen to The Storm from Four Sea Interludes from Peter Grimes by Benjamín Britten. Paint, make a collage, or 3D model of the colours and shapes and scenes it makes you think of, or how it makes you feel.

2 A Winter Storm

3 Do your own picture, collage or model inspired by these pictures by Ted Harrison
