Earlier this year, Year
5 pupils entered a county-wide, interactive, inter-school art competition. The
Cheshire dot-art Schools Art Competition is designed to nurture talent, raise
ambition and take art out of the classroom and into the real world.
Judges selected three
top entries from each of the 21 schools
entering the competition. At King’s, it was Charlie Maunders who impressed the
judges the most with his portrait of King Henry VIII. He was awarded first
place, with Emily Matthews’ outstandingly beautiful silk painting of a galaxy
coming second and Reuben Blackhurst, who showed talent with his sketch of
poppies to commemorate the soldiers of World War 1, coming third. All three
students have done exceptionally well, and we are very proud of their
Charlie’s work has been
selected to go in the art exhibition at The Old
Library in Chester, from 28 June – 12 July, along with the other first-placed
entries from each participating Cheshire school.
