Mansfield Revived Children's Art Competition is part of Mansfield Townscape Heritage Project supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund and Mansfield District Council. 


Children from across our area are being encouraged to create pictures of buildings in the area which covers the Market Place and Leeming Street. 


The closing date for entries is Friday 17 July 2020


Young artists should upload their pictures to the Mansfield Revived page on our mansfieldandarea.org.uk https://www.ourmansfieldandarea.org.uk/content/get-involved/mansfield-revived


All the pictures will be displayed in the 'Mansfield Revived' online gallery and there will be prizes for the best ones! Smyth’s Toys gift vouchers for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd best entries


Guidance for the children:


Some of the buildings in the town centre are looking a bit tired and sad. Over the next few years the Mansfield Townscape Heritage Project will be smartening them up. In the meantime you can help us imagine what they might look like when they are finished by choosing one of the buildings and drawing or painting a picture of it.


It may not be safe to go into town yet, so we want you to use Google Street View to have a good look at all of them and pick your favourite.


All the buildings are in Leeming Street, Stockwell Gate or the Market Place. There’s a map on the Our Mansfield & Area website showing where they are https://www.ourmansfieldandarea.org.uk/content/get-involved/mansfield-revived


When you are choosing which building to draw or paint, we want you to look closely at the buildings above street level, because that's where you'll find the interesting design and decoration. Look at the textures, shapes and colours in the walls, windows and the roof. In your picture you can change the shop – it can be anything you like!
