VISUAL ARTS FESTIVAL

The Visual Arts festival has grown and matured, and in 2023 attracted over 1400 entries from across the country at Junior School and Senior School level.
We announce the Visual Arts festival theme, and publish our curriculum in March/April. Entries are submitted in early August, and our highly experienced, professional adjudication team gets to work. All visual arts artwork is submitted under nom de plumes, so that adjudicators are blinded when adjudicating the work, to both the name of the student and school. Each work of art is individually assessed, and marked according to our carefully considered marking rubric.
We received an incredibly high standard of work across the board, testimony to the phenomenal talent of Zimbabwean students nationwide.
A selection of the best work is recognized at an exciting prize-giving ceremony, in October each year, where top students are awarded trophies and prizes in recognition of their achievements. This is accompanied by our beautifully choreographed exhibition of artwork, celebrating and upholding visual arts standards and achievements across the country. All schools and students, and the public generally, are encouraged to visit, and enjoy the exhibition over the week following prize-giving.
