Zayed Painting Contest

On Monday, February 19th, the Zayed Painting Contet took place at DISD. The event was organized Dubai Electricity and Power Authority and asked the students of grade 4 – 6 to be inspired by “THE YEAR OF ZAYED. CELEBRATING LIFE, LEGACY, and VALUES” and create a painting in 3 hours. They painted portraits, landscapes and even comics with pens, crayons and water colors. Everyone gave their best and great paintings were handed in – the final prize is great after all! The winning painting of DISD will be exhibited together with the winning pictures of the 99 other schools taking part in the contest. They will be competing against each other in the final round. The winner will win 20.000 AED.

When the time was up, the art and class teachers choose the three best pictures behind closed doors. Most important for the was the originality of the idea, as well as the execution and art skills. In the end, the 3rd place went to Ty from 6a, the 2nd place went to Ela from 4b and the 1st place won Kim from 5b. She will now compete against the winners of the other schools taking part on a national level. Congratulations to all of you!
