Discover ARTiculation Prize 2016
As part of the conference, students were introduced to careers in the arts and options for higher education. The day included an inspiring lecture given by Prof. Griselda Pollock to introduce History of Art, and a careers talk presented by the Association of Art Historians, campus tours and a teacher networking event.
The Finals took place in the afternoon, adjudicated by Lord Burlington. Six students gave presentations on works of art as diverse as Jason deCaires Taylor’s underwater sculpture entitled The Last Supper to photographer Alfred Eisentaedt’s image entitled V-J Day in Time Square.
Thank you to students and teachers from: Manchester High School for Girls, Shirebrook Academy, St Albans High School for Girls, St. Bedes Catholic College, Tudor Hall School, Wycombe Abbey.
