Kids Drawing Prize 2018
Sponsored by Faber Castell
The French artists Pierre Bonnard and Édouard Vuillard, whose paintings are included in Masters of modern art from the Hermitage, loved to paint and draw people in their living rooms, bedrooms and bathrooms, transforming scenes that might seem ordinary into wonderful celebrations of home life. For this year’s Kids Drawing Prize, we’d like you to draw an interior from your home – it could be a drawing of you reading in your bedroom, your family cooking together in the kitchen, or your pet sleeping on a rug in the middle of the family room. Take a closer a look at the everyday events of your home, and see if you can turn them into a work of art.
There are four age categories: 5-6 years, 7-8 years, 9-12 years, and 13-16 years.
Hannah Hutchison, Assistant Curator Australian Art, Ron Ramsey, Executive Director and Michael Karakatsanis, Faber-Castell CEO are our three judges, selecting one winner in each age category based on merit.
Each winner receives a Faber-Castell prize pack and their works will be displayed in the Members Lounge. All participants in the competition receive a certificate of merit.
Winners will be announced at a special event at 10am on Sunday 25 November 2018 at the Art Gallery of NSW.
