VISUAL ARTS NEWS: Drawing Week – Prize Winners Announced!
Drawing Week ‘A Climate of Change’ Prize Winners Announced!
This week we were absolutely delighted to receive a letter from Sir David Attenborough commending our students on their remarkable work for this year’s drawing week ‘A Climate of Change’. We selected ten student pieces to send to Sir David Attenborough which we felt were wonderful examples from the many submitted. We also sent him a copy of our exhibition film created by Mrs Leto. I am delighted to announce the ten submissions to Sir David Attenborough as our prize winners. Each will receive a folder containing a copy of the original letter and a copy of the letter from Sir David Attenborough which they can keep for their portfolios in the future. They will also receive some items for their art kit and a gold Visual Arts Young Leader badge as further recognition of their outstanding achievements from this important week. Well done to Yukta C in Year 12, Sophie T in Year 12, Emma T Year 12, Laila in Year 12, Hywel J in Year 7, Freya B Year 9, Vivian Year 8, Jessica B Year 8, Nico Year 9 and Lauren D in Year 9. You should feel incredibly proud of this recognition and I do hope it inspires more wonderful creative work in the future.
Thank you again to all of the students who took part this week. Through creativity, we hope to have reflected the hopes of our young people, the key changes that need to be made and our shared responsibility to protect our planet.
We would like to extend our most sincere thanks to Sir David Attenborough for taking the time to write to us. We are incredibly grateful for him to recognise and commend the work of our students.
