Local Art Awards

Brighton students took part in the 2014 Secondary Schools Art Awards Exhibition held at St Andrew's Church in Brighton last month.

Years 7 to 12 students form the Brighton campus were invited to create artworks for the Exhibition using a variety of artistic mediums including photography, textiles, 3D sculptural media and traditional 2D media. All artworks submitted had to undergo a "pre-judging" pre-selection process in order to determine the finalists who would have their artworks represented at the final judging and Exhibition.  

Three students were named as major prize-winners and twenty-four Haileybury students were selected as finalists.
