I have chosen my grandpa because he guides me through my life and he is always there. He is the best. I want to show his love for birds and everyone who knows him.
It is with great excitement we announce that one of our Year 4 students, Honor, has been selected as a finalist in this year’s Young Archie Portrait Prize. Congratulations, Honor!
Of the 3,400 entries received by the Art Gallery of NSW, Honor’s work was one of 70 chosen by the judges for hanging. Her vibrant and uplifting portrait titled Flying Grandpa, explores her deep admiration for her grandfather. In her artist statement she explains: ‘I selected my grandpa as my subject because he guides me through my life and he is always there. He is the best! I want to show his love for birds and everyone who knows him.’
We look forward to visiting Honor’s work in the Art Gallery of NSW and wish her all the very best of luck when winners are announced next month. Honor’s artwork can be seen on the Art Gallery of NSW website here, amongst the other finalists.
Congratulations to all of the Visual Arts students here at Ascham in Fiona (Years 3 to 6), who worked so hard to create diverse and imaginative compositions for this year’s Young Archies.
