Royston Crow: Life Story Art and the Royston Arts Festival 2017

31 Mar 2017

The Creative Royston Schools Art Competition has become an annual event in Royston’s art calendar. Hundreds of children aged 5-15 enter their artwork in the hopes that they will be one of 20 winners whose artworks appear on the programme cover of the Royston Arts Festival.

Every year the festival committee selects a theme and school children are invited to contribute their artistic interpretation of the theme. Winners are selected by me based on two key factors:

  • a unique interpretation of the theme
  • the skill with which the work is produced

This year’s theme is Changes. using mixed media and the Life Story Art approach, the 20 winning art pieces will be woven into one painting to tell a story that fits the Festival theme. I can’t wait to see what our clever creative kids come up with!
