An artistic triumph!
Each year in October, the Independent Schools Association (ISA) hold an art competition, which is judged regionally with winning entries succeeding to a national competition in November.
MPW London entered several categories as part of the London West submission, which represented over 50 schools and colleges from this region. This is the sixth time we have submitted works, and we have an excellent track record of success in this prestigious contest. The standard is very high with the most talented creative students taking part from across West London. On the judging day, our students’ work was taken to Norden Farm Centre for the Arts in Maidenhead. Venetia Tenti was given the task of exhibiting the students’ work early on the day before judging took place, then waiting in anticipation until the results were declared. She was able to report a fantastic set of results! MPW had three winning results and a ‘highly commended’ accolade.
Lottie Chainey was awarded first place in photography (KS5) with her atmospheric and evocative portraits called ‘Disruptive Dreamer’. Emily Mulryan gained first place in the sketchbook category with an imaginatively crafted and presented investigation (KS5). Manny Dyer was placed first for the textiles award (KS5) with his richly decorated Kimono. Phian Cheng was highly commended for her intricately illustrated Buddhist Temple. All the winning pieces will now be submitted at national level, and we anticipate equally impressive results. We are extremely proud of the achievements of our students and look forward to next year’s competition. Congratulations to all our students for the excellent standard produced and deserved success this year.
