Calling all young artists! Paintbrushes at the ready! Imaginations in starting position!

We are looking for some young artists to use their creative skills to produce a mini exhibition of interpretations of William Shakespeare.

Rather than a blank canvas, it is a clay outline of Shakespeare’s portrait that will be your starting point. Then it’s up to you to add the colour and originality that will transform the piece and make it stand out from the crowd.

The competition is open to children aged 16 and under.  

The winner will receive a voucher of their choice for £50 and £20 for the runner up.

All the entries will form part of a mini exhibition that will go on display in his Master’s Chamber.

How to enter:

Collect an entry pack from the reception desk at Shakespeare’s Schoolroom & Guildhall as part of your visit (this is open daily from 11am to 5pm).  The packs are £1 and include your own clay tile.

Use your artistic skills to transform the piece with paint, glitter and your imagination.

Return your entry to the Schoolroom by 31 August and it will go on display as part of the exhibition and be entered into the competition.

We’ll announce the "head that wears a crown" on 3 September with the winner invited to the Schoolroom to collect their prize from the Master.

All entries will be featured in a mini exhibition after which they can be collected by the entrant.
