TGS student crowned as a national Artist of the Month

One of our budding artist, age seven, was crowned as the Artist of the Month in a national Independent Schools Association’s competition. ISA Arts chose three finalists from hundreds of nominations nationwide and posted short details of their creations on their Twitter feed. By retweeting their favourite design, our Year Two child received the highest amount of votes crowning her the winner.

Her design was chosen by the Montessori St Nicholas charity and was made into a t-shirt to represent The Montessori Centenary Children’s Garden at The Chelsea Flower Show this year. Montessori Centenary Garden – a children’s ‘Space To Grow’ garden at the Chelsea Flower Show – celebrating 100 years of Montessori teacher training in the UK. The garden won gold for their category.

When asked how she felt about her creation being chosen to represent The Montessori Centenary Children’s Garden at The Chelsea Flower Show, she said with a beaming smile: “Happy and proud.”

School Principal Emma Gowers congratulated the Year Two student, saying: “We were very excited to hear about the nomination for her beautiful artwork. We do a lot of art at the school and she worked on this design specifically for the Montessori St Nicholas charity with The Chelsea Flower Show in mind. She is a well-deserved winner and we are grateful to all who supported her to receive this great honour. Well done and huge congratulations!”
