Caldicott’s Community Art Competition Winners!

26 March 2021

 

During lockdown, the Art department introduced a competition for the whole Caldicott community titled, ‘A View From My Window’. The goal was to create a piece of art (in any format desired) including at least part of a window frame… the rest was up to you! The idea of painting something seen through a window is a classic subject, with Matisse’s work being amongst the most famous examples.

Mr Williams was delighted by how the boys embraced the competition, as well as the families of boys, some of whom wrote to Mr Williams saying they hadn’t picked up a brush in years and so were ecstatic at this opportunity to do so. The variety of entries really made the competition a pleasure to judge, with some artists creating images of exactly what they saw, and others constructed images of what they missed, or were looking forward to.
