Merseyside's best young artists crowned at St George's Hall

2 budding young artists are celebrating after battling it out with more than 900 pupils from Schools across the Liverpool City Region to be named the area's best young artists. Erin Gerrard, a Year 9 student from The Sutton Academy and Grace McKeown a Year 5 student from Knotty Ash Primary School, were crowned the overall winners of the dot-art Schools competition at a special prize giving ceremony, at St George's Hall, on Thursday, 15 June 2017.

Erin's winning pen drawing titled:- "Intergalactic" and Grace's charcoal drawing titled:- "Lost Soul" both feature alongside the other shortlisted artworks, in the fifth exhibition in the dot-art Schools competition's history. This free exhibition at St George's Hall is open to the public, between 10am and 4.30pm, from Friday, 16 June to Saturday, 1 July 2017. Following the exhibition at St George's Hall, prints of the artworks will also be displayed at Merseyrail's Lime Street Lower Level Train Station, from 6 July to 6 August 2017.

dot-art Schools is already a well-established fixture in the academic calendar for many Merseyside Schools; since its inception almost 4000 students from over 200 Schools have taken part. This is the 5th year it will take place in the Liverpool City Region and due to its success and a new partnership with Liverpool John Moores University, a pilot scheme for Cheshire was launched this year.

dot-art Schools project manager Carolyn Murray commented:- "The standard of work was outstanding again this year and it's thrilling to see we have so many talented young artists in the region. The exhibition is a fantastic opportunity for the public to check out the best work by some of region's rising stars. We're also excited to be staging our 1st Creative Careers event an inspirational day of advocacy to help teachers champion the impact and value of the arts in School on Friday, 23 June 2017."

The day includes a tour of Liverpool John Moores University School of Art and Design, tour of dot-art Schools exhibition at St George's Hall, Liverpool and a seminar with three expert speakers in County Sessions House. To find out more and reserve a FREE place online.

Entry for next year's dot-art Schools competition opens in September, but Schools that register before the end of term will receive a discounted rate. For more information and to enter, visit:- or contact Carolyn Murray via email.
