Year 5's Creativity Shortlisted for Exhibition at The Natural History Museum
Year 5 at Blackheath Prep were absolutely delighted to have their Art and Poetry exhibition shortlisted for the final of the prestigious David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation Global Canvas Award.
The final round and prize-giving ceremony were hosted in the beautiful surroundings of The Natural History Museum on Thursday 23rd March. A small group from Year 5 were chosen to represent Blackheath Prep and once inside the museum they excitedly helped to put together the amazing artwork for the exhibition along with 14 other schools.
The children then had the opportunity to view the other entries for the prize. The standard of work on offer was extremely high and our competition came from both primary and secondary-aged children. It was fascinating to observe how the other schools had interpreted the brief and Year 5 were inspired by the creativity and wide range of artistic techniques on display.
Even though Blackheath Prep were not lucky enough to win a prize in the final stage of the competition, the children were thrilled to meet two famous wildlife artists, David Shepherd and Jonathon Truss. A truly inspirational and educational experience.Published: April 26 2017
