When all of the entries were in, I had to judge the pictures to pick a winner. This is the criteria that I used:
- How well the drawing captures character.
- The amount of detail in the drawing.
- How clean the drawing looks.
At the bottom of this page you can see how I worked with others and responded to feedback along the way.
The Winner of the Competition is:

Working with Others and responding to feedback
I had to work with my teacher Melanie to put the newsletter together. I also had to respond the feedback as the competition went along.
Here are the emails between me, my mum and my teachers. Pauline and Melanie are teachers at my school and Julia is my mum.

I know you are focussing on other subjects but if you would like to work on your Arts Award today there are still two things you could do:
1) Try to start making your masks at home with found materials. This doesn’t mean you can’t make the masks again when we are back at school. You could think of this as a prototype (a practice version)
2) Think of an Arts Challenge that I could put into the next newsletter. It should be a task that is fun and easy for students and teachers to complete at home. You could use Google to help you.
I had a chat with Aidan and he just wanted to tell Melanie that he had an idea for the arts challenge. Everyone could draw a quick 5 minute portrait of someone in their families or one of their pets.
Also, would you mind letting Melanie know that I have ordered some art materials for Aidan’s mask and once they arrive Aidan will start making it.
Great, that is a fantastic idea from Aidan for our challenge, also please do let me know if there is any art materials Treasure House can provide we can get them delivered.
Melanie will be thrilled I will let her know.
Thanks for getting in touch. That is a great idea for an art challenge and I will put it into next week’s newsletter and encourage everyone to have a go. That’s great news about the art materials too. I really look forward to seeing what he makes!
Have a lovely weekend,
Friday 22nd May
Hi Treasure House Students,
I just wanted to say that I hope you have a relaxing half term. You have plenty of work from me that you could be getting along with so I won’t send any more for now. Remember that this is a good time to practice your drawing, you might like to try Aidan’s challenge of drawing a family member or pet! Melanie
Some of the teachers and students have asked for a little more guidance about the competition. Could you provide a few tips that we could put in this week’s newsletter? I was also wondering if you had any ideas about the prize?
All the best,
1: criteria Each of the 3 criteria will have a point system for me to use to pick the winner, but I don’t want to show the scores afterwards if that’s ok

The only thing I wanted to ask was for the competition winner!
Can you check that the shortlist is correct and if it is, tell me who you think should be the ultimate winner?

I pick first place as ‘Toad’ and second bunnies. Please can you pass this message on to Alice:
Congratulations for winning the competition! I chose your drawing as the winner because it had a lot of detail and had character too.
