Maltings Art Prize 2019

Open to students from Year 7 to Year 11, the competition encourages students from St Albans schools to experiment within art, use traditional and contemporary methods, express their ideas and respond to a set theme.

With so much talent in our department across every year group, it would be great to see some entries from Verulam students.

Competition Details:

The Maltings Art Prize is a competition designed to support and encourage the development of art skills from the students of St Albans based schools.

Winning work will receive £250 plus £1000 for the school art department.

The theme is ‘My St Albans’ – This can be anything that St Albans means to you. Eg. how you spend your weekend; a memorable day/place/event within the city; an iconic landmark; a feature etc.
