The Blue Coat School is delighted to have been selected to be part of the Art in Education programme at the Liverpool Contemporary Art Fair, which is taking place from the 3rd to the 6th July at the World Museum in Liverpool.
A selection of artwork by our GCSE and A Level art students will be selected and the work will be judged by Christian Furr and Roger McGough who will select three winners from each school and present them with certificates during the weekend. Alongside these, there will also be one overall winner from the participating schools who will be awarded a free space to exhibit their work at the Liverpool Contemporary Arts Fair 2015.
The Liverpool Contemporary Art Fair will be the biggest arts show in the North with 1, 000 works of art from more than 50 national galleries on show.
Highlights will include a world exclusive collection of original paintings and drawings by Nelson Mandela from the Long Road to Freedom Exhibition from the Belgravia Gallery London. The drawings and handwritten motivations by Nelson Mandela that accompany the works are of great historical significance.
Visitors will also be able to see original art from Stuart Sutcliffe, Yoko Ono, Bill Wyman and Noel Fielding.
This a great opportunity for our students to experience the commercial side of art and offer a contribution to this prestigious arts fair. The Arts in Education programme allows schools to show the hard work and dedication which students put into their school work throughout the year.
