We are delighted to announce the results of our March City Art Stars competition for schools. Our talented winners this month were from Pirniehall Primary School, Clovenstone Primary School and Craigentinny Primary School.

The City Art Stars programme is a series of interactive art workshops delivered to schools digitally via Microsoft Teams. In March, pupils invented their own fantasy creatures, created colourful abstract artworks, drew interiors and composed their own beautiful landscape paintings. All workshops were inspired by artworks from the City Art Centre collection.

The winning artworks for March were voted for by members of the City of Edinburgh Council Culture and Communities Committee and City Art Centre staff members:

GOLD AWARD – Maria, Clovenstone Primary School, P7

We were very impressed by Maria’s fantastic interior drawing inspired by the paintings of John Henry Lorimer. There is a real sense of perspective in this artwork and it has lots of lovely details. Well done Maria!

SILVER AWARD – Douglas, Craigentinny Primary School, P3/4

The Giraffedragon invented by Douglas is a brilliantly terrifying creature! We love the use of imagination in this artwork and appreciate all the hard work that has gone into this detailed drawing. It is so eye-catching! Well done Douglas!

SILVER AWARD – Nashla, Clovenstone Primary School, P3/4

The brushwork in this landscape painting by Nashla is excellent. This artwork really captures the feeling of being in a rainy Scottish landscape, it is beautiful and atmospheric! Well done Nashla!

BRONZE AWARD – Willow, Craigentinny Primary School, P3

Wow, what a unique creature the Featherpig is! This drawing by Willow is just wonderful and we really enjoyed reading the story behind the creature too. Well done Willow!

BRONZE AWARD – Sandra, Pirniehall Primary School, P5

This bright, abstract artwork by Sandra really made us smile. The variety of shapes, colours and patterns used are just delightful. What a fabulous piece of art! Well done Sandra!

BRONZE AWARD –  Tasmiha, Clovenstone Primary School, P3/4

Our judges thought that this landscape by Tasmiha was brilliant and beautifully painted! Well done Tasmiha!
