The ISA National Visual Art Competition is held annually. It is a wonderful opportunity for schools to showcase their pupils’ art and for teachers to share best practice and ideas. There are dozens of classes to cover different age groups and genres, from traditional 2D art, through to fashion and photography.
Thank you to our sponsor Arts Award for supporting the competition this year.
The ISA Art Handbook 2018 is now available to download. This booklet provides you with detailed information about the competition and how to enter. Qualification to the national competition is through area qualification.
