Chesham Grammar School Young Artists Scoop Awards
'Honey Face' by Meggie Pendered
Chesham Grammar School artists featured again in the final exhibition of the Young Artist Awards run by the Buckinghamshire Art Society. Former students Nicholas Phillips and Meggie Pendered were joint second prize winners and received a cash prize at the December award ceremony. Nicholas Phillips was also presented with the prestigious ‘Selina di Girolamo Award’ for emerging talent in art. Pendered and Phillips were A Level Art students at Chesham Grammar School, and are now at university.
Over 75 pieces of artwork submitted for consideration for the Young Artist Awards came from the whole spectrum of Buckinghamshire schools and the standard was as impressive as ever. Head of Art and Photography at Chesham Grammar School, Chris Biddle, pictured holding the Young Artist trophy said; “I am extremely proud of the students who all practice very hard, their work would not look out of place in any commercial gallery space.”
