This years’ Barton Peveril’s annual Schools Art Competition saw 260 applications from secondary schools across Hampshire.
The College invites students from it’s feeder schools across the county to take part in the competition, which aims to promote artistry from a young age and celebrate artistic excellence.
The competition is split into two categories: Years 7 and 8, and Years 9, 10 and 11, with each category having one winner and two runners-up.

Director of Art & Design at Barton Peveril, Lynne Milton said:
We are delighted with the continued interest in the annual Barton Peveril Schools Art Competition.
This year we again received a large number of entries from Years 7 to 11 from across schools in Hampshire.The winning entries demonstrate a level of practical skill and accomplishment that belies their age. Sophisticated application of colour, mark making to convey texture and strong composition feature in the art work. They explore personal topics on the themes of nature and conservation with assurity and confidence. All entries are now showcased in an online exhibition and a physical display of the winners and runners up entries will be available to view at Barton Peveril during our October Open Events.”
