dot-art Services is the not for profit organisation that manages dot-art Schools. The generous support of our sponsors and champions alongside school entry fees enables us to sustain the programme.
“It is always great to champion art in our schools as art nurtures creative thinking and problem solving abilities. When we nominated schools in Yew Tree ward to take part in the dot art competition last year, we weren’t sure what to expect but the results were outstanding. Then the world changed, and we couldn’t visit exhibitions to view the work of all the winners as planned. Instead voting and viewing was all managed virtually as was the Awards Ceremony and gallery. Hats Off to dot-art for managing this complex process so well and affording families and pupils an opportunity to enjoy each other’s art despite lockdown! To any councillor who hasn’t yet championed the dot-art competition, I would strongly recommend you do so to open up schools and pupils in your ward to a great opportunity to demonstrate their talent and be Artists!”

We rely on the generosity of our sponsors to run the dot-art Schools programme every year. Please consider talking to us about how your business can help us to support the next generation develop their creativity.
dot-art Schools is always looking for businesses that value the importance of a creative education, who can help ensure we continue to offer hundreds of children and young people every year, an invaluable and unique experience and nurture the creative talent of the future. In return we can offer a fantastic package of website, press and social media promotion, involvement in our annual prizegiving events, prints of our winning artworks and much more.
Sponsorship packages start from £2500. We are always happy to discuss support in kind and bespoke arrangements.
Could YOU be a dot-art Schools Champion?
Do you believe in the importance of art education?
Do you think ALL children should be given the opportunity to express themselves creatively?
Would you like to support the work of dot-art Schools to nurture talent in children?
Due to continued cuts to the arts curriculum in schools, more and more children and young people are not being offered the chance of a rounded, creative education. This is despite the fact that the Creative Industries are currently growing at TWICE the rate of the rest of the economy and a huge proportion of future jobs will have creativity at their core. Many schools would love to take part in dot-art Schools, but budget cuts have made it a challenge. We need people and businesses like you to make a small contribution to allow them to get involved.
In return, as well as the knowledge you are making a huge difference to the lives of children and young people in your region, you will receive:
Your logo and weblink on the portfolio page of the school you are supporting (we can either assign you a school in need of help or you can pick one close to your heart!) Your company name listed as a dot-art Schools Champion on the website. A special dot-art Schools Champion logo to use on your own website. Invitations to the Prize Giving Event and Exhibition launch in June.
£250 enables a school to take part for one year and helps sustain dot-art Schools.
