We are delighted to announce the winners of our November City Art Stars competition for schools. Weekly, interactive art workshops were delivered via Microsoft Teams to pupils from Craigroyston Primary School, Forthview Primary School and Dalry Primary School.
Pupils created paintings 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 and eye-catching interior collage artworks inspired by our exhibition ‘Reflections: the light and life of John Henry Lorimer’.
The winning artworks for November were voted for by City Art Centre staff and members of the Culture & Communities Committee at the City of Edinburgh Council:
