Sefton Young Artist of the Year competition success

Posted on 30 Jun 2021

Well done to our talented young artists, who have enjoyed great success in this year’s Sefton Young Artist of the Year competition organised by The Atkinson in partnership with The Arts Society Southport. 

A number of St. Mary's pupils entered the competition, producing some truly amazing work across a variety of artistic practices. Grace Carey, aged 16 from Blundellsands, featured among the competition winners with her entry, simply called ‘Covid’, whilst Jamie Warner's 'Spider Man - Miles Morales' and Ruby Garforth's 'Experience' both achieved special commendations.

Art is a key strength at St. Mary’s College, which offers Art Scholarships to talented candidates at 11+ as well as for Sixth Form entry. The school aims to give all pupils a broad and varied experience of Art and Design, helping them to attain a wide range of specialist skills in drawing, painting, collage, sculpture, ceramics, photography and printmaking.

A digital exhibition of all of the Sefton Young Artist of the Year competition entries, including several more from St. Mary's pupils, is available on the Atkinson's website:
