Superbloom

Wellbeing Art Challenge

Wellbeing Art Challenge

To celebrate the launch of Superbloom at The Tower of London we are inviting all schools who are officially part of the project to take part in the Wellbeing Art Challenge!

We want students to create a group artwork piece inspired by how gardens play a role in supporting nature and people’s wellbeing. The piece should represent how gardens and the biodiversity they support help students’ own personal wellbeing, the wellbeing of all human beings, other species or even the wellbeing of the whole planet. 

Students’ artwork can be submitted in any type of medium including drawing, painting, sculpture, baking, fashion design etc. Entries should be submitted via video or photo (guidelines provided upon registration). We will also share  entries on the Superbloom Schools webpage. The deadline for entries is 5pm on Monday 6th June 2022.
