Arden DFAS First Prize

Two BTEC and 2 A level students have got the prizes this year, after judges from Arden DFAS came into College to inspect the Art Exhibition of students’ work. BTEC Art & Design student Lauren Henry got the top prize for her fine art paintings, while the runners-up prize went to fellow BTEC student Sadia Sultana, who produces textile artwork.

A further two prizes were handed out to A level Fine Art student Kelsey Evans and A level Photography student Alexander Conway. Kelsey impressed the judges with her black and white pencil drawings, while Alexander’s artwork centred around portrait photography.

All four students have received cash prizes from Arden DFAS and were presented with their prizes at a ceremony on Friday last week. Representatives from the Arden Decorative & Fine Arts Society were on hand to give out the prizes.

Tjark Schoenfeld, Curriculum Leader for Creative Arts, commented:

“The College’s association with the Arden Decorative & Fine Arts Society stretches back for the last ten years and it’s great to have their continued support,” he explained. “The standard of the artwork produced this year was very high and chosing winners for these awards was not easy, but we’re grateful to Dennis and Isabel at the Arden Decorative & Fine Arts Society for taking time out to judge the work. The awards they give out reward the students’ hard work and inspire them to continue to strive for excellence.”
