The Art in the Park Schools art competition called ‘Through an eye of a child’ is an innovative art initiative that recognises the artistic and cultural talent of students. Therefore the students are given artistic licence to represent the theme through their own interpretation and creativity.The theme for this year’s competition is OUR BIODIVERSITY, OUR TREASURE Solutions to the polluted Pietermaritzburg city towards a richer biodiversity’.

This will provide learners with the opportunity to showcase their individual artistic talent. The main objective of the initiative is to channel the student’s positive thoughts revealing the passion they have for art whilst displaying consciousness of the environment they live in-said Art in the Park event Coordinator Zama Nxasana.

There will be 3 individual winners in the Junior School and 3 individual winners in the Senior School categories – all 6 winners will be presented with a certificate from PMB Tourism and 10 movies tickets to the value of R600 each  from Maritzburg Sun.

Schools should make their submissions by the 25 April 2018 at Msunduzi Pietermaritzburg Tourism- Publicity House, 177 Chief Albert Luthuli Street, Pietermaritzburg.
