Ms Williams, our Head of Art, looks forward to submitting the children’s artwork to the ISA London North Art Competition every year. In December 2020, Ms Williams was so impressed by the children’s creativity that she entered their artwork into a total of 18 categories.
That was a record number of entries for TGS – and in January 2021, it was followed by our best-ever results in the competition!
Our Les Hiboux (Reception) children won First Prize in the ‘Textiles Group’ category, and a Form Five child won First Prize in the ‘Photography’ category. A Form Four child earned Second Prize in the ‘Fashion & Accessories’ category. Plus, TGS received a Highly Commended Prize in three additional categories: ‘Art 2D Individual’ (for a child at our Nursery), ‘Art 2D Group’ (for Form One and Two children), and ‘Sketchbook’ (for a Form Five child).
This outstanding result was a welcome bit of good news at the beginning of the January lockdown. Art is an essential part of the TGS curriculum, with each year group exploring a different artist and genre, and learning the skills and techniques associated with each one. We are so proud of our young artists and their masterpieces. Well done to everyone whose work was submitted!
