Wearable Art Show

Our art students have so impressed the organisers at Dundee’s first ‘Wearable Art Competition’ that all of the school’s entries have been shortlisted to the final stage of competition.

Wearable artwork by eleven of our sixth form artists will now be showcased at Bonar Hall, where models will show off the school artists’ creations during a ‘Wearable Art Show’ on the 11th October. Entries will be judged on their quality, originality and innovation, with the overall winner taking a prize of £100 and winning a professional photography session for their artwork.

Dundee Wearable Art is an initiative that “encourages artists, designers, makers and dreamers from Dundee and beyond, to participate in making works of art using the body as a canvas for creativity”.

Dundee Wearable Art aims to celebrate creative people of all ages and from all kind of creative backgrounds, including fine art, contemporary art, hand-craft, fashion, costume design, make-up, live performances, and new technologies.

Kilgraston’s Head of Art Miss Gillian Macleod said “This is such an exciting opportunity to showcase our girls’ work. We’re thrilled that all of our entries have been shortlisted to appear in the final show, and can’t wait to be part of what promises to be an enthralling event”.
