Youth Open Art 2017 Competition

Date: 20th Mar 2017 @ 4:11pm

The St helens Youth Open Art competition was a free competition to showcase the artistic talents of all ages up to aged 16, including preschool and nursery ages. The visual art competition was open to all art disciplines including ceramics, digital, drawing, glass, mixed media, painting, photography and sculpture.

At Penkford we sent off approximately 10 entries ranging from painting, mixed-media and relief work. All entries were taken to St Augustine of Canterbury RC High School who were overseeing the competition, and around 500 entries were made from over 35 schools in the St helens area!

We were informed that two of our pupils, one from Y11 and one Y7 had been chosen to have their work professionally exhibited at the world of glass. It was a wonderful night and the work produced by our pupils looked fabulous in the exhibition. Super proud of our pupils!
