01 July 2021

Congratulations to Upper 6 pupil Sophie Duez who has been shortlisted for the prestigious Holt Festival Art Prizes: the Sir John Hurt Art Prize and the Sworders Prize for Young Artists.

Her surrealist portrait drawing, entitled ‘Face Time’, was inspired by the growing pressures young people face with social media. It was constructed using a 0.2mm HB pencil.

The piece will be exhibited from the 24th July to the 31st July at the Adrian Hill Fine Art and St Andrew’s Meeting Room in Holt. The winners of the prizes will be announced on Sunday 25th July at 6:30 pm.

Good Luck Sophie!
