Weekly art competitions

7th April 2020

Paint brushes and paint

We want to help you stay in touch with your creative side during the coronavirus lockdown, so we’ve launched weekly art competitions!

The competition is for any children in care or care leavers living in Devon or looked after by Devon County Council, and each week there will be a different theme. What you do within that theme is up to you. Drawing, painting, photography, poetry, junk modelling – anything you can think of, just be creative! There’ll even be a prize for the winner!⁣

Email your entries along with your name and age to participation@devon.gov.uk.

We will be sharing the entries on social media, so please avoid photos of faces.⁣
