Art Society Give Out Awards

Art winnersFour Visual Arts students at The Sixth Form College, Solihull have had their talent and hard work rewarded prizes from The Arts Society, Arden.

Kathleen Lodge (aged 18, from Birmingham) won first prize for her Fine Art wall hangings. Qasim Taraq (also aged 18, from Birmingham) got second prize for his graphic representation of faces. Ellie Trifonos (aged 18, from Birmingham) won first prize for her textiles work, which included palm trees made of fabric. Meanwhile Tia Henry (aged 18, from Solihull) was highly commended for her photography; she took photographs of nature at night, with bluebells highlighted by flash photography.

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

Zoe Maksymiw, Curriculum Leader for Creative Arts, commented:

“It has been 12 years that the Arden Decorative & Fine Arts Society have worked with the College and we are very grateful for the support they show our students. It is always difficult to narrow down all the work our students produce to just a handful of winners and this year we had the biggest exhibition we’ve ever had for them to choose from.”
