Schools Art Competition

“From nursery to high school, kids all over the Park will take part in the annual BIG Weekend Art Competition, making their own works of art to showcase what they love most about the Mountains of the Cairngorms., we will be celebrating their works of art at the top of the funicular railway.

Supported by local rangers, artists and wildlife experts and now in its 5th year, the Art Competition sits at the very heart of the BIG Weekend and showcases what it is really all about; connecting people with our amazing nature and experiencing it first-hand.

On Saturday 12th May our local artists and their families will be rewarded with a trip up to the top of one of Scotland’s highest Munro’s in the Cairngorms Funicular, to spend an afternoon in the Ptarmigan with juice, cake, prize giving and craft making.

Make sure your kids don’t miss out on this fantastic day by getting their Mountain inspired artworks to the local rangers on Friday 20th April.”
