Art At The Ridge is inviting entries for its 2011 Christmas Card Competition for school children (aged 7 to 19) at all schools in Antigua & Barbuda. The Bank of Antigua started this event a few years ago and it ran very successfully, highlighting the abundance of creative talent among the island's children and young people. Some of the artwork produced has been of such accomplished quality that it seems amazing to realise these are not already well-known artists! When the Bank of Antigua stopped this competition, the Museum of Antigua & Barbuda took up the mantle in 2009 and, last year, Island Academy held an in-house competition which again continued to show the wonderful creativity and imagination among our youngsters.
It is therefore with great expectations that Art At The Ridge is now also holding this competition. All schools in Antigua & Barbuda are invited to submit entries from their students to Art At the Ridge (based at Sugar Ridge) by Friday 4 November 2011.
Further information is below.
