Success at the Independent Schools Association Art Competition 2017

The Independent Schools Association organise a series of regional art competitions across the country annually. Moon Hall (Reigate) took part in the ‘London South’ regional art competition on the 22nd June 2017, where we were competing with schools from Kent, Surrey and Sussex. This year we achieved considerable success in the competition and we are absolutely delighted to have four of our students recognised for the quality of their work.

One of the most competitive categories in this competition is Key Stage 4 Two-Dimensional Art in which schools will generally enter their best GCSE Fine Art paintings into this class. We are extremely proud of one of our students who achieved First Place for her GCSE exam; Portrait of a Lama, painted in April of this year.



We entered work into the Key Stage 3 Textiles category for the first          time. This is an area of art we do not usually explore, however the Year 9 students experimented and refined their techniques in Batik work, drawing with hot wax, traditional tjanting tools and inks. We are delighted to announce that we achieved First Place for a Batik study based on a still life image.



We also achieved success in the Key Stage 4 Photography category achieving Second Place for a stunning Frog photograph and a Highly Commended for an Extreme Sports photography.


Well done!
