Our Lady’s Convent School is celebrating, for the second consecutive year, the national achievements of its artists.
Melanie Lamb has been recognised not only as the Winner of the ISA Midlands Region annual art competition with her piece ‘Time Flies’ but also nationally. Melanie’s drawing was submitted for the Key Stage 5 drawing category at the end of the last academic year when she was in her final year at the School. Now at university reading History of Art, Melanie was delighted to hear the news of her win this week.
At a regional level Melanie was accompanied in her achievements by Ava Kenning who was awarded second prize in the Key Stage 4, 3D Art category with her work ‘seagull’ and Lily Matthews who was also given a second prize for her piece ‘Abbie’ in the Key Stage 4 Drawing category.
Mrs Anna Schofield, Head of Art at the school said, “We have a long history of enabling pupils’ creativity to flourish and this is evident in the frequency with which they achieve regional and national awards. The standard of all the work submitted in this competition was very high and we are always delighted when our pupils’ hard work is recognised.”
