The art department regularly recognises the achievements of individual pupils in the senior school 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 celebrating the diverse talents of pupils in our co-educational day school.

Our artist of the moment is Vicky in Middle Fifth. She has been working on the theme of ‘Identity’ and in particular disrupted reality. This is a self-portrait painted using acrylic paint. Vicky enjoyed working in impasto, which is a technique used in painting where paint is laid on thickly with a palette knife to give a painting texture and an almost 3D effect. This artwork shows a great deal of skill and dedication. Well done Vicky.
