On Friday 27th June, pupils and staff at Highbury Grove School put on an art exhibition of A-Level, GCSE and special project work, all to be judged for the inaugural Currell Art Prize.
The Currell Art Prize is a new award designed to stimulate interest in the arts for the pupils of Highbury Grove. A brand new cup has been designed for the winner, while 1st, 2nd and 3rd prize all take home vouchers for Cass Art, to spend on supplies.
The award was judged by Anne Currell, Daniel Baker, Education Director at Cubbitt and local artist and Highbury Grove parent Dexter Dalwood. All three judges found it incredibly difficult to choose the winner because of the quality of the work on display.
Huge congratulations goes to our first prize winner, Burhan Putra, second prize winner Kenny Castro Oreno and third prize winner Delilah Sykes.
A huge thank you must go to Henry Jones, the Headmaster of Highbury and Phillip Diggle, resident art teacher for all their help putting together the exhibition and also to the pupils for their hard work. We hope that the Currell Art Prize inspires the next generation of Islington artists!
