Year 13 student Sophie with her piece 'Libby', Year 12 student Katie with 'Gemini' and Year 13 Tilly with 'Running Free' have had work submitted in the 2019 International High School Arts Festival, taking place on the 21st March.
The International High School Arts Festival in Japan is an event especially for secondary school aged pupils between 15-18 years of age, to show the world their artistic talent. The Festival is sponsored by the International Foundation for Arts and Culture (IFAC).
In each participating country an art competition is held, to establish a national representative. The representative then has the opportunity to travel to Tokyo to see his or her artwork displayed in the National Art Centre, Tokyo, one of Tokyo's most highly regarded exhibition sites. Four runners-up will have their work exhibited alongside the winner's.
United Learning remains the sole representative from the UK. We are, therefore, in the privileged position of being able to select the national representative from within our Group each year. We were invited to submit art from around the schools for the first time in 2008, and over the years we have had winners from Lambeth Academy, Guildford High School, AKS, Lincoln Minster School, Kettering Buccleuch Academy, and Ashford School.
The winning piece and the four runners-up will be decided by combining the weighted scores from each of four votes. The number of combined 'likes' for each piece on the United Learning's Art social media channels - Facebook, Instagram and Twitter - accounts for 25% of the final score, so please support and get 'liking'! A further 25% of the score will be voted for by Art teachers, 25% by Headteachers and Chairs of Governors from across United Learning and the final 25% by local Manchester artist, Ruby Tingle.
These winners will be announced on Thursday 21st March.
