A-Level Student Gives Lecture at the Courtauld Institute of Art
Yr 12 Fine Art student Louisa Martin gave a confident and heartfelt talk at the Courtauld Institute on 10th January. The Courtauld is the world’s leading centre for the study of the history and conservation of art and architecture. Louisa spoke about Francis Bacon’s artwork “Seated Figure” 1961 - a painting that she had encountered at the QUEER BRITISH ART 1861–1967 show at the Tate Britain earlier in 2017.
Louisa was selected to represent Three Rivers Academy at the ARTiculation Prize Competition. This is an annual competition set up to encourage public speaking and analysis of artwork by young people. Each year our KS4 and KS5 students are encouraged to participate and make a talk about their favourite artwork. Louisa’s was selected from one of four talks given at our internal heat, held in late 2018.
Thanks again to Mrs Payne, Mr Scrivener and Ms Bennett for judging and to Naomi Man, Lucy Miller, Joe O’Hare and Louisa Martin for taking part.
It was great to see Millie Lamkin (former Art Student -and ARTiculation speaker- currently studying on an Art Foundation course at CSM, London) attend to support.
Well done to Louisa for reaching the regional heat and for delivering a great presentation at the Courtauld!
