The Discover ARTiculation Challenge 2019 took place at the University of Leeds on 10 July. The event was adjudicated by Gill Hart, Head of Devonshire Educational Trust. The prizes were awarded by Samantha Colt, Partner, Arts & Heritage at Odgers Berndtson.
The day saw seven speakers who converged from five different schools. Prizes were awarded for Delivery & Presentation as well as Content & Research.
Delivery & Presentation: Wisdom Marufu (Abbey Grange Academy, Leeds) for Vincent van Gogh, Starry Night, 1889.
Content & Research: Ria Mann (Guildford High School) for Amrita Sher-Gil, Village Scene, 1938.
The aim is to engage KS4 students in expressing their opinions, thoughts and ideas about art with confidence, and to enjoy researching their chosen piece.
Each student is invited to submit a 2 – 3 minute film of themselves speaking about a work of art, architecture or artefact of their choice.
Judges from the University of Leeds and our partner galleries will view each film looking at content, structure, delivery and the speaker’s original approach and unique potential before choosing entrants to go forward as finalists.
