Portrait of your Teacher – Portrait Competition

Portrait of your Teacher - Portrait Competition

Every day, our teachers are making a positive difference – empowering minds of the young people and proudly teaching future creatives, innovators and influencers.

At Amity we value the Creative Arts and so the executives very generously support an Art Award to celebrate International Teacher’s day.
