Highclare School is delighted to, once again, be celebrating the talent of local young artists through our community competition, The Highclare Junior Art Competition 2021.
This year Mrs Stott, head of art at Highclare Senior School, invited pupils from across the Midlands to create a piece of art depicting a journey in the theme of artist Paul Klee’s work.
The creativity and imagination exhibited has been incredible. While viewing the artwork submitted, pupils really took our judges on a journey into the world of their artwork, moved to travel along with their dot that went for a walk.
We were so delighted with the quality and imagination of all our winners Mrs Stott invited one of the artists who inspired this year’s brief Alex Edwards aka Brumhaus to view the work
“I’m very honoured that I have been asked to write a few words about your recent competition entries. Paul Klee is one of my favourite artists because he explains what he sees in simple shapes and colours, something I try to do as well.
I am absolutely blown away by all of your amazing pictures of Birmingham and beyond. Recognising some of the places you have drawn and painted has been fun.
What stands out to me from all the entries is that you have all clearly enjoyed making art and have been really inspired.” Alex Edwards – Brumhaus
The Highclare Junior Art Competition is a highlight of our Spring Term, an opportunity to inspire, celebrate and reward budding young artists in our local community, we hope you enjoy our virtual gala presentation.
