Paws, Claws, Tales & Roars: The Next Generation

Barnsley Museums and Fusion, Barnsley’s Cultural Education Partnership are proud to present a display of winning artworks from the Art Competition for Schools 2024, celebrating the talents of children and young people (4-18 years) from across Barnsley.

Students were asked to take inspiration from the work of Brian Wildsmith and depict animals in their natural habitat with judges looking for originality, imagination, narrative and technical skill, as well as use of colour & texture.

With thanks to pupils and staff from:

Athersley South Primary School, Outwood Primary Academy Darfield, Highview Primary School, Holy Rood Catholic Primary School, Horizon Community College, Hoyland Springwood Primary School, Keresforth Primary School, Lacewood Primary School, Laithes Primary School, The Ellis C of E Primary School, Wellgate Primary School, Wombwell Park St Primary School, Worsbrough Common Primary School


A special thank you to the Cooper Trustees who have funded the competition.
