The annual ARTiculation regional heats took place at Roche Court in Wiltshire at the beginning of March. Ella Thomas L6 came second out of 12 regional finalists speaking about Edvard Munch’s Madonna (1894-5).
The ARTiculation Prize is a nationally acclaimed annual event designed to promote the appreciation and discussion of art. The competition seeks to engage sixth form students, regardless of background or experience, with art and to develop their confidence and ability to express their opinions, thoughts and conclusions. Each student is invited to deliver a ten minute presentation to an interested audience about a work of art, artefact or architecture of their choice. Adjudicators are asked to assess each presentation as a whole, looking at content, structure, delivery and the speaker’s original approach and unique potential.
