From Primary Nuggets …. (Thanks Simon)
Take part in this fantastic new competition and you could see your work displayed at the world famous Kew Gardens in London.
In 1936 artist Edward Bawden designed a new poster to encourage people to visit Kew Gardens using London transport. Now ArtisanCam wants you to investigate Bawden’s brilliant use of linocut, before producing your own design for a new poster using the same lino printing processes that he used.
Learners can submit their designs simply by clicking on the ’send to competition’ button. The winner will receive an iPod nano and the winning entry will be displayed at Kew Gardens and seen by hundreds of thousands of visitors.”
The competition is open to everyone of school age across the UK and you can enter as many times as you like. The competition closes on 18th July 2008, so get printing! Visit the web site now to get started: www.artisancam.org.uk/flashapps/explorelinoprinting/index.php
