MACKINTOSH THE INNOVATOR

Recently a group of young artists from Govan High joined pupils from three other secondary schools in Glasgow (Williamwood, Notre Dame & Hillhead) to form an exhibition at the shopping centre called ‘Mackintosh the Innovator’. Last week we were invited to the Prize giving event & we are delighted to announce that Craig Brown (Age 14) won  1st prize (£100) in the Expressive category with his painting titled ‘A New Era’ which told the story about the Glasgow School of Art’s fire and restoration initiatives. Also Megan Lewis’ (Age 14)  painting ‘Girl In The Forest’ won 2nd prize (£75) with Omer Ibrahim receiving a Special Recognition prize (£25) for his work inspired by a bookplate designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh.

Our entire group of artists were great ambassadors for Govan High. You can see the team’s artwork displayed in the attached photograph – Anjelika Rutkowska, Craig Brown, Julia Prycz, Kimberley Murray, Megan Lewis, Omer Ibrahim, Louise Gilmour, Natasha McCorquodale, Jack Colley, Eli Kepeva, Rachel Thomson, Rebecca Morrison, Dylan McCabe, Emma Neilson, Rachel Donnelly, Jodie Duncan & Cody Crawford.

This experience has been absolutely fantastic for our pupils and the public have been extremely complimentary about the high standard of artwork and imagination displayed by our young people.

So on behalf of all our young artists, thanks to everyone who supported this project …your support was greatly appreciated.
