Project Art Wall at Worlddidac Asia 2017

Worlddidac Association believes the arts are critical to child development and academic success. Art promotes self-esteem and provides opportunities for self-expression.

We are launching ‘Project Art Wall’ to provide an opportunity for schools in Thailand to have their students’ art work exhibited at the walls of Worlddidac Asia 2017.

Project Art Wall in partnership with:

Students will benefit from:

  • Development of creative problem-solving skills
  • Experience in working with a variety of materials in imaginative ways
  • Practicing conceptual thinking and planning
  • Developing resourceful and inventive ideas
  • Self-expression and communication
  • Self-esteem from the opportunity to participate in social activity

The Worlddidac Asia’s ‘Project Art Wall’ can be made possible with support and blessing from the UNESCO Bangkok.

We invite pre-schools and primary schools to prepare an exhibition for our event based on a recommended theme or any other chosen by one of their own art teachers. Every painting, art piece on display will be awarded the certificate from UNESCO Bangkok

Change the World Theme

Project Art Wall is designed to be an art project for students of pre-school, primary school and secondary school levels. It’s an ideal platform for art classes, design classes, creative thinking classes to share and show their talents to others. Students will be challenged, engaged, and inspired by this unique experience of working with limited resources and time.

The participation guideline is very simple and there are benefits from taking part in this activity. Student Art on the international exhibition wall can be a powerful motivator to get students thinking outside the box, and push the limits of their imagination. Working in teams will provide experience in cooperation and executing a creative idea as individuals within a group. Not to mention, it’s a whole lot of fun!

About Project Art Wall

Worlddidac Asia invites public and independent pre-schools, primary schools and secondary schools to participate in our Project Art Wall, a gallery program dedicated to displaying works of art created by young student artists.

Our juried gallery program led by UNESCO Bangkok presents hundreds of student’s works of art to be displayed on the wall of exhibit stands at Worlddidac Asia 2017 at the Queen Sirikit National Convention Center (QSNCC) during October 10 -12, 2017.

Our volunteer curators will work directly with schools to give advice on all aspects of the exhibition process and preparation.

Join us at the Project Art wall

The Worlddidac Association invites you and the students in your school to participate in the Project Art Wall. This project gives students insight into the world of resources for education developments and allows their artistic talent to be featured in an international environment. This is not a contest.

While we want to promote creativity, originality and try not placing much restriction on subject matter, we would recommend students to consider using the themes of ‘Happy School’ for pre-school students and ‘Change the world’ for primary and secondary school students to guide the art direction.

We try not to omit any of the drawing, art work we receive. However, because we want to include the work from as many different schools as possible, we can not promise to display each and every submission we receive. We will accept up to 10 pieces from each school and we anticipate a total of no less than 100 pieces but will accept up to the first 300 pieces.

Below are guidelines for submission of artwork.

  1. All students in pre-schools, primary and secondary schools are eligible to participate.
  2. All submissions must be in 2D mounted on foam board/ photo board. Black and white. Pen and ink drawings or photography are all acceptable. All artwork must be the entrant’s original creation.
  3. Artwork cannot be larger in size than 90cm x 90cm or smaller than 30cm x 30cm.
  4. Each piece of art should be clearly and legibly identified with the artist’s name, school and grade. Write or type the information on the front of each submission. Please note that this information will be featured along with the student’s art.
  5. Artwork will be displayed in groupings by school. By submitting an entry, you are agreeing to the Organizer reproducing your image for the promotion of Project Art Wall. Artwork selected may appear on the Worlddidac Asia 2017 website (www.worlddidacasia.com) as well.
  6. Artwork has to be sent to the exhibition venue per schedule arranged by the organiser and if unsold, will be available for pick up after the show has completed.
  7. The organizer will do utmost to take care of the art pieces but will not be responsible for lost or damage of the art pieces.
