Art Competition Success

Three of our Year 11 art students are showing their original creations at the Museum of Liverpool as part of a special exhibition to mark the start of the International Festival of Business in the city.

Their pieces were all based on the theme 'Liverpool - a global city' and were selected for display by a panel of judges as part of the Mayoral art competition.

Our boys had the chance to attend a special event at the museum on Thursday 5 June to preview the exhibition and pick up their awards:

  • John Burton was a winner with his traditional and digital print montage of various buildings and sculptures in the city. His clever composition and incorporation of text really made the piece stand out.
  • Jacob McNabb was highly commended for his deconstructed collage and Indian ink depiction of the iconic Liver Building.
  • Michael Walsh was commended for his fantastic large scale triptych of stamp designs depicting key buildings in our city.

Michael even had the opportunity to discuss his work with Joe Anderson, the Mayor of Liverpool, at the event. Joe was so impressed with it he ordered a signed copy of the print to hang in his office!

Congratulations boys, we're all proud of you!
