This activity is intended to foster artistic creativity within a Christian context while competing with other Festival participants.
- All art projects must be the original work of the presenter and should reflect his or her creative ability and cannot include any printed or copied images from books, magazines, catalogues, newspapers, the internet etc…
- Groups participating in the Arts activity may be represented by one or more members of the group and have one or more art projects. If there is more than one project representing the group, the higher mark will count as the group mark in Arts.
- All work must be done by the competitor. Grades will be negatively affected if the work is clearly not at the level of the competitor.
- At the final presentation, all work must be clearly labelled with the name(s) of the competitor(s), their grade, Church name, and a brief explanation of the project.
