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.

Acting Head of Art, Jess White, 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 Olive Harper in the Upper Fifth Form. Olive produced this mixed media townscape of St Ives, following the residential trip last Autumn. Her stylistic approach has been influenced by the artists Brenda King and Alfred Wallis.
