Sketching Stars 2018

How you can join our UK-wide sketching competition…

Our national search to find the Sketching Stars of the future continues ― and this year, we’re asking pupils to Design their Dream School...

We’ve teamed up with architect, Ffion Lanchbury, whose childhood passion for sketching, drawing and designing has translated into a professional career as a Chartered Architect. Read more about Ffion’s career here.

As part of Sketching Stars 2018, Ffion is inviting primary school pupils from across the UK to test their creativity and drawing skills by designing their very own school.

BUT this year, the competition has a special twist...

We’ve also partnered with LEGO® inspired pop artist, Andy Morris from Little Big Art, who’ll not only transform the winning pupils’ Dream School design into a real-life LEGO® model but he’ll also host a classroom workshop for each winner and their class ― showing how he uses LEGO® bricks to inspire his work.

Teachers can access the KS1 & KS2 competition sheets when they sign up as a Teachers’ Club member, along with a number of additional bonus activities to complete with their students.

What can I win?

We’ll be choosing two winners, one each from KS1 and KS2, who’ll win:

  • £270 worth of stationery for their school
  • A STAEDTLER goody bag and certificate
  • LEGO® architecture workshop delivered by Andy Morris of Little Big Art
  • A model based on the winning pupil’s Dream School, made from LEGO® bricks.

We'll also choose three runner-up entries who will receive:

  • £270 worth of stationery for their school
  • A STAEDTLER goody bag and certificate.

Plus — every teacher who enters their class in the competition will receive a FREE stationery pack!
