Art in Action 2019

Bring Your Ideas to Life, Join ART in ACTION 2019

Grade 10 and 12 students! Now is the time to bring out the creative geniuses in you. CIIT will be launching the most prestigious art competition in our school this year, the ART IN ACTION 2019. We are on a roll to discover aspiring artists of this generation and showcase their artistry and creativity in the field of traditional and digital arts.

What is Art in Action 2019?

Art in Action 2019 is an art competition which aims to provide an avenue for Grade 10 and 12 students to showcase their artistic capabilities. This CIIT organized event is also an effort to call on young folks who dream of becoming future artists to bring their creative imaginations to life by participating in this exciting event.

Having a decade of experience in providing modern education, our school firmly believes that giving our young generation exposure to such activities is a great way to encourage them to pursue their dreams so they can experience a lifelong career in the future. Such art competition can also be a platform for the other students to discover their hidden talents and skills in the arts.

What is the theme of Art in Action 2019?

For 2019, we featured the theme “The Future of Technology” to reflect on the advent of new technologies in this season of the digital revolution. The student participants are given the freedom to express their visual interpretation of the theme in either of these two categories:


Students who would like to participate in this category should create their freehand artwork using traditional art materials. Examples of such techniques are watercolor, oil paint, crayons, charcoals, and the like. All artworks should be a product of their own imagination and an original creation based on the theme of the art competition.


Unlike the traditional arts, the Digital Art category requires the participants to create an artwork using digital technology. They can use any software program in producing a digital painting from scratch. All artworks should also reflect the provided theme of the event and must be a masterpiece of their own.
