Leehurst Swan pupils have come first in two categories and runners up in another two in the ISA south west regional art competition!

Maddy (Year 11) won the Key Stage 3 and 4 sketchbook category with an array of colourful and intricate drawings exploring the theme of contrast. The competition judge commented, 'This is a wonderful collection of artwork, cuttings, and notes – it shows a strong sense of drawing ability and I love the fact that every time you look at it, your eye finds something new to explore. Well done Maddy!'

Maddy is a Leehurst Swan art scholar and consistently creates exceptional pieces of work. Mrs Gimenez, GCSE art teacher at Leehurst Swan remarked, ‘Maddy is a very talented artist and success in the ISA art competition is a wonderful way to celebrate the work she has been producing.’

Amelia (Year 8) topped the Key Stage 3, 3D art category with her ceramic piece entitled ‘The Art Cupboard Comes to Life!’ The competition judge commented, 'I really like the sense of humour and fun in this piece of artwork. It shows great skill and imagination and brought a smile to my face. Well done!' Mr Liversage, Head of Art at Leehurst Swan said, ‘This is fully deserved. Amelia works so well in art and in this piece, she has really found her voice.’

Luke (Year 9) and Lois (last year’s Year 11) took second spot in their categories, Key Stage 3 2D art and Key Stage 4 textiles, respectively. Luke’s 2D piece is a print, entitled Creative Hands, which shows how we can use our hands creatively, in this case using hand-bells. Lois’ large textile piece was inspired by ripples on the surface of water. It is made from fabric using batik, hand painting and machine embroidery techniques.
