Your Art World

make and share

Welcome to Your Art World, where 3-18 years olds are challenged to make and share their art. Every term pupils across Scotland will create a new set of art challenges to inspire children and young people to get making.

Your Art World is a place to think, wonder, create and share your art online, as part of a virtual community. It could be 2D, 3D, film, animation, audio or writing. There are open-ended challenges to encourage critical thinking, play and individual voice. Learning resources are provided to help teachers, parents and carers scaffold learning experiences that are genuinely child-led, encourage play, health and wellbeing and demonstrate how artists develop ideas and express what matters to them.

All of the challenges in Your Art World are open-ended to encourage children and young people to lead their own learning. The getting started resources are designed to support learners to think for themselves, identify what matters to them and harness their imagination without relying on a grown-up to tell them what to do.
