Newnham Middle

YOU CAN HELP MAKE NEWNHAM MIDDLE SCHOOL THE WINNER!

 

Art.co.uk, the online destination dedicated to experiencing and buying art, challenged three schools to take part in the Autumn Art Sparks Learning campaign earlier this year. Each school was given 20 framed artworks by Art.co.uk, but it is the public who choose which school should win the grand prize of £750 worth of art supplies for their school, to further inspire the artists of tomorrow.

 

The schools are showcased via www.Art.co.uk/artsparks

 

Since January, a new Art Team at Newnham Middle School has been packed with students eager to express their creativity. A recent unit on Pop Art introduced pupils to the work of Andy Warhol and Roy Lichtenstein and students turned their own self-portraits into colourful ceramic tiles. Local artists have also partnered with students to paint a mural outside their school.

 

Cllr Henry Vann, Portfolio Holder for Education at Bedford Borough Council, said: “We hope that the students at Newnham get the chance to use these resources and I would encourage you to vote on-line now! The children thoroughly deserve to win and I hope that they get the opportunity to create some fantastic art as a result.”

 

Art teacher at Newnham Middle School, Alison Boston, said: “We have been so lucky to have been shortlisted by Art.co.uk and are thrilled with our stunning new Art collection; this week, we revealed the framed pictures to the pupils in our Celebration Assembly. However, we still have a chance to win a further prize of £750 of art equipment, which would make a huge difference to our Art department, and we need peoples’ support!”

 

Previous campaigns have seen U.K and U.S. schools compete for a grand prize.

 

If you would like to vote for Newnham Middle School, you can do so via  www.art.co.uk/artsparks. Please note: the closing date for nominations is Friday 11th October.
