Mayor of Enfield's Award for Visual Arts 2017 – Winners Banner Unveiled

This year the Mayor's Award for Visual Arts, run by Enfield Council worked in partnership with Barnet and Southgate College, who provided art and design training for local primary school teachers.

The competition was open to all budding artists in years 5 and 6 attending any Enfield primary school. The Mayor's Award for Visual Arts Celebration Evening was held in April 2017 at Barnet and Southgate College, where all of the young artists, their families and teachers were invited to formally accept their certificates and awards. There were six shortlisted pieces of artwork from each year group, 12 pieces of art work in total. As part of their prize these 12 pictures and paintings were printed onto a huge banner, which was unveiled last month at Chase Farm Hospital.

Alyson Cook, Creative Arts Curriculum Manager from Barnet and Southgate College said: 'The standard of the entries from all the primary schools was truly outstanding and we were really impressed with the techniques and use of colour. This year there were 33 entries from 12 Enfield primary schools and it was a difficult task to choose the final winners. It?s great to see all the winners unveiled on the banner.'

Gwyneth Hamand, Learning Consultant for Enrichment and Progression from Enfield Council said: 'We've been delighted with the success of the Mayor's Award for Visual Arts this year. Barnet and Southgate College have done a great job running the training for teachers and supporting the competition. That has resulted in a high level of buy in from Enfield Primary Schools and the really high quality of art work from Enfield's young artists.'

The shortlisted art work will remain on the large hoarding outside Chase Farm Hospital as part of the building's re-development courtesy of Vinci Construction.
