Congratulations to Hayley Pickett from Year 7. Hayley is one of sixty finalists in the 2022 University of New England School Acquisitive Art Prize. Her entry was a painting inspired by the work of American ‘Pop Artist’ Roy Lichtenstein.
There were 591 art entries this year, from 46 schools, and these works demonstrated the application of a very high standard of technical skill as well as creative expression. The selection committee commented that there was a wonderful diversity of art media and subject matter represented which made the selection process very difficult, given the high standard.
Last year Layla McKee won her age category, with her portrait 'School Me'. This work was acquired by the University of New England Education Faculty.
