ART-iculate Prize at St. Marks’ Primary School, Barrhead, Scotland
At St. Mark’s Primary teachers Janie McIntyre and Catherine Rook introduce children in P6 and P7 to critical analysis, presentation and public speaking skills through their competition ART-iculate.
ART-iculate 2016 had a photography focus. This was a fantastic opportunity for P6 and P7 children to immerse themselves in critical analysis of some of the world’s most iconic photographs.
This year’s choice to read photography tied in with the theme of St Mark’s Art Show, which was contemporary photography. This was led and delivered by the pupils of the photography club. A challenging project!
P6 and P7 were given an opportunity to choose and research a photograph from a portfolio of images ranging from 1932 surrealists, graphic designers to photo journalists of 1980’s.
Pupils then took part in an upper school ART-iculate competition. The finalists were judged by Matilda Williams, ARTiculation Scotland’s 2016 winner; Ron Cowie, Senior Education Officer Education Scotland; Alan Horn, Director of Development Glasgow School of Art. The pupils were outstanding and received a lot of acclaim from distinguished guests. Katie and Sydney were the two winners.
