Schools work for art contest

2017 awards event

Pupils from six local primary and junior schools are hard at work making artwork for this year’s Stormont Awards. The 2018 theme is “jungle” and the artwork will be two-dimensional.

Schools participating are: Rye Community Primary School, St Michael’s CE Primary School Playden, Peasmarsh CE Primary School, Beckley CE Primary School, Northiam Primary School and the junior classes at Rye College.

Prizes are available for different age groups and will be presented to winners in each category, and to their school, on Saturday November 3 at 2pm by well-known local artist Richard Adams. The entries will be shown in an exhibition in November.

The judges will be: Sussex-based Dani Humberstone, Vice President of the Society of Women Artists; Jane Fenn, Director of Rye Art Gallery; and Rye resident Will Taylor, a member of the Royal Society of British Artists (RBA).
