Kirsty Penny (Class of 2019) has been shortlisted for a Scottish Portrait Award with a painting of her dad.
The Scottish Portrait Awards are open to anyone over 16 years born, living or studying in Scotland. It is an annual competition entirely managed by volunteers on behalf of the Scottish Arts Trust, a registered charity dedicated to promoting the arts in Scotland.
The Scottish Portrait Awards judges choose at least 30 works in fine art and 30 in black and white photography for the annual travelling exhibition which is held every year.
Kirsty is currently studying Fine Art at Leeds Art University and was delighted to share the news with one of her Art Teachers from school, mentioning “I remember you telling us to apply at school…”
Pupils in P3-P7 create a vast array of Art and Design work lined to their class topics. Pupils explore key skills and techniques at different ages and stages, building on previous learning and nurturing talent for Senior School Certificate work in N5, Higher and Advanced Higher Art and Design and Higher Photography.
