ISA Regional Art Winners
Stunning and creative artwork by Claires Court pupils impressed the judges at the recent ISA London West Region Art Exhibition and Competition, with several pieces picking up awards.
Held at Norden Farm on Tuesday 3 October the exhibition displayed artwork from over twenty five independent schools from around the London and South West region, with age groups ranging from Reception Years to Sixth Form. Pieces on display consisted of paintings, drawings, 3D work, textiles, photography, fashion design, computer animation and sketchbooks.
The school picked up six first prizes and six second prizes with several others being highly commended.
The winner’s pieces now head to the national final on 10 and 11 November. Joel Wareing, Head of Art at Claires Court commented on the success of the boys and girls saying, “We are delighted that the hard work of the pupils has been appreciated. This is always a tough competition with a large number of quality entries from other schools. For these young artists this recognition is a wonderful boost to their confidence which will no doubt allow them to develop their creative talents even further.”
