We are delighted to announce the winners of our December City Art Stars competition for schools. Interactive art workshops were delivered via Microsoft Teams to pupils from Sighthill Primary School, Clovenstone Primary School, Craigroyston Primary School, Leith Walk Primary School, Craigentinny Primary School and Dalry Primary School.

Pupils created drawings of Edinburgh landmarks inspired by the artist Kate Downie whose work is featured in the City Art Centre exhibition ‘Incoming: New Acquisitions at the City Art Centre’. Classes also created colourful stained-glass windows, window view drawings and eye-catching interior collage artworks inspired by our exhibition ‘Reflections: the light and life of John Henry Lorimer’.

The winning artworks for December were voted for by City Art Centre staff:
