More than 100 young artists shine at Stockport Grammar Art Competition
This year Stockport Grammar School’s Year Five Art Competition welcomed 113 entries from young artists from 16 local primary schools.
Sponsored by Brewin Dolphin and based around the theme of ‘self-portrait’, the young entrants showed off their creativity and imagination with a wide range of final pieces that included 2D and 3D artwork.
Artists and their families visited Stockport Grammar School for an exhibition evening which showcased their work.
Lukas Schwarzmayr of Gorsey Bank Primary School won the competition with an eye catching self-portrait with fantastic shaded detail created in a collage style.
Runners-up Maria Majid of Lady Barn House School created a colourful 3D project and Lucas Bird of Vernon Primary School impressed with his half photo, half drawing piece which showed great skill in both the drawing and shading aspects.
Stockport Grammar School’s Head of Art, Richard Davies said: “All the pieces were fantastic and the amazing artwork produced showed the talent, imagination and time the artists had put in.
“We were impressed by the quality of the work, both in terms of the technical skill that was evident in the use of a range of media, and also with the level of creativity which could be seen in the variety of outcomes.
“Clearly the boys and girls had enjoyed responding to the theme of ‘The Portrait’ and having seen their work displayed alongside their peers, they will be encouraged to keep drawing and painting long into the future.”
The entrants were selected to represent their school at the competition and every artist went home with a ‘goody bag’ which included a range of wonderful art equipment.
