Students at The Brittons Academy, Ford Lane, Rainham, have spent art lessons focusing on composition, media and tone in preparation for The 2016 Saatchi Gallery Deutsche Bank Art Prize. They even visited the west London gallery to gain inspiration before submitting their work last week.
Year 9 students Shiann Humphrey, Byron Demanbro, Daisy Gentry, Georgia Busser and Anastazja Kura, and Year 10 youngsters Dulcie Lewis, Alexandria Noon, Caitlin Gregory and Alice Webb will now wait to see how they fare.
Dipti Pandey, head of art, said: “We are very proud of our students because they work very hard, take advice and take all opportunities to enhance their art.”
Twenty shortlisted pieces will be featured in an exhibition in February. The secondary school winner will pick up £1,000 – and their school £5,000.
