Sheffield Girls’ students shine in Young Artists Exhibition and Snooker Portrait competition

Pupils at Sheffield Girls’ were able to showcase their creativity in the recent Sheffield Young Artists Exhibition. This year, the exhibition expanded to include a captivating Snooker Portrait competition, in collaboration with the organisers of the famous World Snooker Championship.

With 800 paintings submitted by students from a range of Sheffield schools, the exhibition provided a vibrant platform for young artists to display their exceptional work and community spirit. Among the standout achievements, Year 12 students Chloe and Lottie emerged as the overall winners of their categories, receiving accolades from the Lord Mayor of Sheffield. Chloe, Ellen, Maryam, Izzy A P, Izzy T, and Charlotte also exhibited snooker portraits, with some even featuring in the championship programme, and Charlotte joining an interview with the BBC. Their outstanding contributions exemplify the depth of talent nurtured within the school's art community.

Reflecting on the success of our students, Kairen Andrews, Head of Art, said: “We are so incredibly proud of our amazing artists who were selected to have work included in The Sheffield Young Artists Exhibition '24. Their work exemplifies the talent and creativity of so many of our students. Particular congratulations go to Chloe and Charlotte who were awarded Silver Plates for the Senior categories. Six of our A Level Fine Art students were invited to produce portraits of past Snooker World Champions by Abbeydale Rotary Club. The pieces produced were outstanding and our congratulations go out to them all.”

We are also delighted that two of our infant pupils have been selected to feature their artwork in the upcoming Art in the Park exhibition at the Botanical Gardens in September, and we look forward to catching up with them then.
