The ISA National Art Competition is an annual event that showcases pupils' art and celebrates creativity at ISA Members' schools. It is also an opportunity to for teachers to share best practice and ideas.  There are dozens of categories which cover all age groups and multiple genres, including 2D and 3D art, textiles, drawing, fashion and photography.
