John Byrne Competition

Small - John Byrne 2015Renowned artist and playwright, John Byrne, invites children and young people in schools across Scotland, from P4 – S3, to participate in the second annual John Byrne National Drawing Competition. John will head the selection panel that will choose the winners, and runners-up, whose work will then be exhibited at Paisley Museum and Art Gallery. All exhibitors will meet John himself at a prestigious exhibition opening at the gallery in March 2016.

Schools are invited to tune in on Friday 4th December at 10.45am to find out about John’s work, drawing in particular, and why he wants to keep on learning! Children and young people participating in the Glow TV session will have a chance to ask John questions about his life and work.

Inspired by John’s love of drawing, and his desire to get children drawing more often, the aim of the competition is to develop children and young people’s imagination and creativity to represent the world around them. For more information about the competition, visit the Education Scotland website.
