Australian Olympic Committee Village Art Program
For the first time in 2016, the Australian Olympic Committee (AOC) is opening the popular Village Art program to secondary school students.
For the London 2012 Olympic Games, the AOC received over 2000 artworks from schools around Australia. However, these were all from primary school students.
To continue to inspire our athletes, secondary students with a talent for art or studying visual arts, are invited to draw, paint, sketch and design artworks to be displayed in the Olympic Village.
As a school that has embraced the Pierre de Coubertin award in the past, PLC Sydney students are encouraged to join in with this program and show off their art skills.
Students can send in their works with a short personal reflection, explaining why they have created their particular work.
Secondary students are invited to research and create works that can be literary or artistic which demonstrates/depicts an appreciation of the Olympic Games.
This could include:
- A moment in Australian Olympic history
- Their favourite Olympian, both current or retired, and their achievements i.e. records, medals, why they inspire that student
- Their favourite Olympic sport.
All submissions must be sent by Monday 18 April 2016 to:
Australian Olympic Committee
Museum of Contemporary Art
Level 4, 140 George St
The Rocks, NSW, 2000
