Themes

Themes

Stuck for inspiration? Have a look at these themes which have been created by other young people from across Scotland and get those creative cogs turning. Choose from four themes which include question, picture, word and freestyle (which means anything goes).

Freestyle

If you’re not inspired by any of the other challenges, why not come up with your own?

Artist videos

Kick start your art making by watching artists including Catherine O’Brien, Taylor Han, Lewis Hou and Tragic O’Hara getting creative. Anyone can make art and there is no right or wrong way to go about it!

Get started

Get started

All of the themes which have been chosen are deliberately open-ended which means there is no right or wrong answer. Use these films to get started and help your thinking. Find out what matters to you and use your imagination. Best of all, using these means you might not need a grown-up on hand to help. All the answers are inside your head!

How to experiment

Your Art World Exhibition

Your Art World Exhibition

At the heart of Your Art World is a goal to inspire and empower young people to think and act creatively but there’s also the added bonus of having your artwork showcased. All submissions will also be displayed in a digital exhibition at the Scottish National Gallery from summer 2023 to Spring 2024 with a selection of 2D and 3D physical works.
