U5th Artists Recognised in Final Assembly
During Final Assembly on Friday 5th July, prizes were awarded to Upper 5th artists for outstanding GCSE artwork. The artwork was judged and prizes awarded by Justin Godfrey, Head of Office at Savills in Bishop's Stortford, who said,
“Yet again I’ve been blown away by the quality of artwork that the College presents to me for consideration for our Arts prize. Each year I find this task harder and harder as the standard of work just gets better and better. The variety of media methods available to the students is both diverse and very interesting - I feel that it’s slightly unfair to only give out three awards this year!"
First prize was presented to Elody D for her haunting images inspired by Francis Bacon and a fantastic book of coursework.
Second Prize went to Clara H, whose range of portraits developed from sketches via multimedia and digital print created a stunning final piece.
Third Prize was presented to Ellie L for her work inspired by Henry Moore, including her final reclining figure and her 3D pottery, showcasing her raw talent.
Congratulations to the winning artists and thank you again to Savills, sponsors of the Art Prizes.
