An online public vote to find Cheshire's best young artists opens on Wednesday 4th April. Almost 300 pupils from 19 Cheshire schools have entered the dot-art Schools competition and are hoping for your votes to see their artwork on display in a public exhibition later this spring at Storyhouse, Chester.
dot-art Schools is already a well-established fixture in the academic calendar for many Merseyside schools; since its inception over 3000 students from almost 170 schools have taken part. This is the sixth year it will take place in the Liverpool City Region and due to its success and a new partnership with Liverpool John Moores University, a pilot scheme covering Cheshire West & Chester, Cheshire East and Warrington was launched last year.
Carolyn Murray, Project Manager of dot-art Schools commented: “We are delighted with the schools response to the new Cheshire scheme, and now hope everyone will get involved by voting for their favourite artwork.”
An expert panel have narrowed it down to their top three entries from each school ready for the public vote. The artwork with the most votes from each participating school will form part of the exhibition, which opens in June at the Storyhouse cultural hub in Chester.
The overall winners will be chosen by a special guest judge and announced at a prize-giving ceremony on 7th June.
