    The very first Children’s National Art Competition hosted by The National Wax Museum Plus. The summer is over and children everywhere head back to their educational institutes to begin another year of learning. We are delighted to be kicking off the school term this year with our very first National Art Competition. We are inviting students from all over the country to paint, sculpt and create something around the theme of Fairy Tales and Folklore, and the winning pieces from each age group will be displayed in the National Wax Museum Plus until the end of the year! Theme – Fairy Tales & Folklore. Paint, draw, sculpt or build your favorite character and send us a picture to enter and the winner will have their piece exhibited in the Museum for the rest of the year. There are loads of great prizes for those who enter and you can also win some cool stuff for your class!
