Artist of the Moment

Individual achievement

The Art Department regularly recognises the achievements of individual pupils in the Third Form through to the Upper Sixth through the award of the title, ‘Artist of the Moment’. Entries cover a wide range of disciplines, including drawing, painting, photography, printmaking, sculpture, installation and mixed media.

Head of Art, Ali Escott, said: “The ‘Artist of the Moment’ feature allows us to celebrate the achievements of our pupils with the wider school community and highlights the high standard and breadth of work produced during the course of the academic year.”

This week’s ‘Artist of the Moment’ is Benjy Hayter in the Upper Fifth Form. Benjy has recently created these abstract clay forms which have been inspired by Barbara Hepworth and the St Ives landscape. They have been carefully embellished with newspaper and acrylic paint.
