Thank you to everyone who took part this week. We enjoyed reading your suggestions! Stars were awarded to entries which followed the challenge of giving one or more ideas to make more accessible.
Our first winner this week is fierce_raccoon of Evelyn Street Primary School. They included a range of specific measures that could be taken to make art more open to all. As you will know, we don't award competitions win for length of entry and in this case it was for the ideas in the second half. Well done!
Our second winner is compelling_mouse of Faringdon Community College. Similarly, they focussed on the task of coming up with new ideas to help people access art and explain and used good reasoning to explain why these would have a big impact.
Congratulations to both of you and well done for everyone for taking part.
This week's competition is focused on a topic raised in Session 3 - making art accessible to everyone.
You might have read some rather startling facts in Session 3:
There were only five black people nominated for Oscars in 2020, out of 130 nominees.
And out of 2,300 paintings in the National Gallery, only 21 are by women.
These statistics show there is still lots to be done to help people all people have the same opportunities when it comes to art.
Can you come up with an idea to open up art to more people, no matter what their background?
For example: one idea is to increase the amount of funding that is given to people who want to go to art school to encourage more people to go. What else can you think of?
The deadline for entries is Friday 26th June at 2:15pm. Good luck!
