Top Achievements in Art

In November we selected work from four of our promising artists at Thorndown. We had been invited to enter their pieces in the Cambridgeshire Area Young Artist Competition, known as CAYAC.

We were delighted when we heard that Charlotte  in Year 2 had been awarded first prize in the Key Stage 1 section, for her imaginative picture of Rapunzel’s tower, beautifully painted by mixing warm colours in powder paint. Can you spot her work in one of the photos taken at the exhibition at Swavesey Village College? On Saturday 28th November, Lottie collected her prize at the awards ceremony.

Can you also spot Danisa’s deceptively challenging abstract design in blue, based on the ideas of Bridget Riley and her kinetic stripes; Benedict’s detailed collage of a burning Tudor house and Milan’s powerful African sunset with original silhouette designs?

Well done to all our artists at Thorndown for their ongoing bold and original work!
