Congratulations to Emelia (Year 8) who has been announced as the 3rd place winner of the 2021 Young Artists Competition. Diana (Year 8) was also highly commended.
Emelia’s piece followed the brief, “Fire, Iron, Smoke and Titanium”. Her interpretation of Bilbao’s cultural heritage features the shimmering titanium planes of the Guggenheim Museum contrasting with its industrial history of iron and steel. Her creation uses crayon and pastel and was featured in the recent Educational Supplement of the Sur in English newspaper.
Diana’s colourful work of art was created using acrylic paint on canvas. It portrays a modern perspective of Egyptian ruler Cleopatra, compared with Michelangelo’s portrait or Shakespeare’s dramatisation of her love affair with Julius Caesar.
Ms Jane Norrie of the Benahavís Decorative and Fine Arts Society visited Swans School to award certificates and prizes to Emelia and Diana.
In total 8 Swans School students were chosen as finalists. Well done Acke, Ana, Carlota, Julia, Rose and Nicole.
Swans School nurtures creativity in our students, encouraging them to express themselves and process emotions through different forms of art. We believe that by integrating creativity throughout the whole curriculum, we better stimulate innovative thinking and self-confidence.
