College Artists Recognised In Prestigious ISA Art Competition

Helena Lintott awarded first place in National ISA Art Competition
Recent Upper Sixth leaver, Helena Lintott been awarded first place in the Independent Schools’ Association’s prestigious National Art Competition.
Helena’s stunning painting The Gift took first place in the coveted Over 16 Painting category, The Gift refers to the Three Graces who in Greek mythology are the personifications of beauty, charm, and grace; they were the daughters of Zeus and given these ‘gifts’ by him to bestow on the world.  The piece will be instantly recognisable to anyone connected to the College as it has featured on the cover of the school’s Pinnacle magazine.
We are also pleased to tell you that Year 12, Sophie Cheshire’s GCSE design project, that won the Midlands Regional Key Stage 4 Textiles class received a Highly Commended in the National competition.  Her winning design project used textures, sounds and colours to create a holistic aesthetic experience to help slow the development of Alzheimer’s.  Her work took an innovative approach and you can understand why it caught the judges’ eyes. Sophie also took a second award in the Regional competition receiving a Highly Commended in the Key Stage 4 3D category.
Helena and Sophie were not the only College prize-winners in this year’s Art competitions as a number of other pupils also saw success in the ISA Regional Midlands Art competition. Recent leaver Fleur Street won the Over 16 Photography, and further awards were given to Lower Sixth Formers, Damien Cowie who placed second in the Key Stage 4 Drawing category and Abbie O’Carroll Bailey who came second in the Key Stage 4 Sketchbook class.
Princethorpe College Head of Art, Paul Hubball, was delighted commenting, “These prizes reflect the talent we have within our school. There were plenty of excellent entries for the competition so we are very pleased to have so many winners.”
