Art in Heaven 2018
This theme asks pupils to think about holy buildings and places of worship or pilgrimage. Perhaps one(s) they have visited? Can they show in a work of art what makes these places special, sacred or holy? Are they friendly places? Peaceful? Good places for thinking, praying or feeling close to God? Children might design their own holy space. Some entries will focus on the idea of holy spaces in the natural world as well: mountain top, river side, sunset beach. What about a holy city? Encourage pupils to read and use scriptures from different religions about what makes a place holy. We’d love to see work on Varanasi, Makkah, Bethlehem, Bodh Gaya, Jerusalem and Amritsar.
