Word challenge | January-June 2022

Your Art World

Pupils from Our Lady of the Missions Primary in Giffnock challenge you to create something inspired by the word


Word challenge

Pupils from Our Lady of the Missions Primary 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

Get started

All of the challenges in Your Art World are open-ended to encourage creative thinking. The getting started pages help children to think for themselves and figure out what matters to them without the help of a grown-up.

How to experiment

Share your art

Share your art

The deadline for you to send us your art is Thursday 30 June 2022.
We will add all your art to the gallery soon after.

Remember that schools are in with a chance of winning £100 of art materials when they share pupils’ art online.

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.
