Art Student Success

Art Student Success.

The Art Department here at Cardinal Newman College has worked with Taylor Patterson, a financial advisory firm based in Preston, throughout one of the year 12 projects. Students on the BTEC Diploma in Art and Design course created artwork in response to the theme of ‘My Surroundings’. As such, the students were provided with a brief, written to accommodate the needs of Taylor Patterson.

The project was run as a competition, with the winning artworks to be displayed within the Taylor Patterson premises. At the end of the project, twelve pieces of artwork were selected by a panel of staff from Taylor Patterson for long-term display.

From those, Tia McKiernan-Kari was named as first prize winner and Ben Ibbotson was awarded second place. Both students received vouchers to purchase art materials.

Art teacher Hannah Murphy said:

“The Art department is extremely proud of the achievements of all our art students and it is especially pleasing to see their talents recognised and celebrated by outside agencies. The department is very grateful to Louise Potter and everyone at Taylor Patterson for providing students, once again, with an exciting and enriching opportunity as part of their art studies.”
