Word challenge | Spring 2021

Your Art World

Pupils at Galashiels Academy challenge you to make something, inspired by the word:

Trampoline

Use this word as inspiration to create your own 2D or 3D art, writing, film& or sounds.

Word challenge

Pupils from Galashiels Academy have come up with a word to inspire you. This short video shows how they came up with the word. Taking this word as a starting point, use the How to grow ideas resource to think, wonder and create your own unique artwork. You might end up making something that looks nothing like the starting point.

Artists meet the challenge

Getting started

Getting started

All of the challenges in Your Art World are open-ended to encourage children and young people to lead their own learning. The getting started resources are designed to support learners to think for themselves, identify what matters to them and harness their imagination without relying on a grown-up to tell them what to do.

Your Art World

Every term we’ll post a new set of art challenges designed by children, for children. We want to inspire you to think, wonder, make and share your art in our online gallery. It could be 2D, 3D, film, animation, performance, writing or anything else you can think of.
