A Sense of Place – Art Competition

  • Workshop

You are invited to create a piece of art inspired by your sense of place.

Close your eyes for a moment and think of the places that are important to you. Is there a certain place you love exploring, such as a woodland, park or pond? A favourite climbing tree or place to build a fort? How about a market, museum, or places you like to go to with your friends?

How do you feel about this place, what makes it special, important, familiar to you? What memories do you have of this place? What significance does it hold for you? 

Let your imagination soar in this art competition for children and young people up to 18 living in Laois. The sky is the limit and your artwork can be in any visual art medium such as drawing, painting, Lego, sculpture, print, collage, digital photography, mixed media, graffiti etc. 

The age categories are:

6 and under
6–8
9–11
12–14
15–18

Five winners will be selected and their artworks exhibited at Dunamaise Arts Centre café from 11 June, and also made available as a series of postcards!

Get creating! The deadline for submissions is 25 May.
