An evening of ARTiculation!

Lower Sixth ARTiculation competition

17 January 2024

On Tuesday 16 January, the Lower Sixth (Year 12) took part in the annual ARTiculation competition. The competitors are provided an opportunity to deliver a short presentation about a work of art, design, architecture or any visual media that really inspires them.

This year, nine Lower Sixth pupils took up the challenge. The artworks chosen highlighted a diverse range of interests.

Wendy – Song Dong’s Waste Not

Serena – Female Power Portrayed in Art

Chen – Ninjago, Season 8

Victoria –  Alexandre Cabanel’s Fallen Angel

Keren – Gustav Klimt

Luma – Lois Van Baarle: Art & Emotions

Ophelia – The Beatles’ Yellow Submarine film

Padmaja – Raja Ravi Varma

Nampetch – Ari Aster’s Midsommar


Thank you to all the competitors for working hard to create such an informative and entertaining evening. The final prizes were distributed as follows.

The Highly Commended prize went to Serena for her historical knowledge, contextualising the work of Artemisia Gentileschi, and for her obvious passion for Gentileschi’s ground-breaking portrayals.

Victoria was awarded the Runner-Up prize for her detailed focus on one work of art, and why it presented such a challenge to both the 19th century art establishment and today’s viewers.
