The perfect day out

2nd & 3rd October 2021.

High on a cliff overlooking a spectacular coastline, the
Scarborough Art Show has become a cultural beacon of the Illawarra, attracting visitors and exhibitors from the region and across the state.

Now in its 23rd year, the annual show has developed a reputation for its quality, its breadth and its affordability. Painters, printmakers, photographers and sculptors join with jewellers, ceramicists and craftspeople from Sydney to the Southern Highlands to create a vibrant exhibition, with something for everyone.

An hour’s drive south of Sydney through the Royal National Park and across the scenic Seacliff Bridge, visitors can enjoy a coffee, food, live music and kids' entertainment, and come away with an affordable piece of art.

When:
Saturday 2nd October 2021 10am-5pm
Sunday 3rd October 2021 10am-3pm

Kids

Kids - ArtSpark and iCreate


Exciting things are happening at the little school on the coast...

The aim of our Artspark competition is to encourage and develop artistic abilities in children of our community, and give them an opportunity to showcase their work among their art peers. The competition this year is for children that attend public schools in the Illawarra region, in either infants or primary levels.

The theme for the competition in 2021 is 'Home'.

An entry form can be downloaded from here - Entry Form

The children's work is put into one of 3 categories either K-2nd class, 3rd & 4th class or 5th & 6th class. The artwork is then given a number and then judged by professional artists on the merit of the artwork alone. The judges do not know the names of the children or which school they are from. That way a true & fair decision is made.

iCreate is Scarborough Public School's own art program which has run successfully since 2010. The work produced in a variety of mediums is on display at the art show along with the Artspark competition.
