Tesco Bank Art Competition for Schools 2015

This year there are even more reasons to enter with 85 fantastic ways to win!

  • 53 great prizes of art materials for winners with their work displayed at the Scottish National Gallery
  • £100 vouchers for art materials to 20 schools as a thank you for entering
  • Free artist-led workshops with help towards transport costs included for 12 lucky schools

With fun, inspiring themes for nursery, lower and upper primary, secondary and special education schools we hope you enjoy looking at, talking about and finally making your own art. You can download each of the categories separately. All winning artworks will be framed and exhibited at the Scottish National Gallery with a selection featured in a colourful calendar posted to every school in Scotland.


You can still see the 2014 exhibition at Royal Hospital for Sick Children, Edinburgh until 7 June 2015. The exhibition has already been on show at a number of venues across Scotland including Scottish National Gallery, Beacon Arts Centre, Greenock and Paisley Museum and Arts Centre.


Just a note to say how much the pupils enjoyed participating in the competition. They have a range of additional support needs but tried their best and loved looking at the pictures that were suggested.

I just wanted to say how much our nursery enjoyed the ‘Fish’ theme this year. We had real fish in nursery, a rainbow trout which we touched, smelt and looked at closely. We’ve had sea creatures in our water tray. I hope you enjoy the children’s paintings, they really enjoyed making them

Thank you so much for a fabulous afternoon.  It was so inspiring to see all that wonderful artwork and to celebrate the children's success.  The event was so well organised and we felt very welcome.  Andrew was so fired up that he did a drawing on the bus home using his new art materials.

We had a fantastic day and loved to see all the children's work, the day was well organised and we know many people that have said when they visit Edinburgh they will pop in to the gallery to see all the work.
