The Fourth Plinth Programme is the most talked about contemporary art prize in the UK. Funded by the Mayor of London and supported by Arts Council England, the programme invites world class artists to make astonishing new works for the centre of the capital city.
As part of the programme, London’s school children from all London boroughs are asked to come up with brilliant ideas about what it means to live in the capital. This year’s annual Schools Awards attracted more than 1,800 entries of creative works inspired by the Fourth Plinth in Trafalgar Square.
14 of Halcyon’s Grade 7 students have had their work accepted by the London Mayor Fourth Plinth Schools Awards! We would like to wish a massive well done to the following students, and thank you to Art Teacher Sue Dance for guiding the students and submitting their work:
- Tallulah and Annmarie (joint piece)
- Mary Iris
- Leyli and Noemi (joint piece)
Grade 7 created sculptures from recycled materials, which they collected over the term, as part of their Service and Action commitment. The students then used these materials to construct their imaginative sculptures in response to British culture.
