Diverse artwork presented by Cleary Scholarship candidates
The work and personal statements of candidates for the 2020 Cleary Scholarships, awarded to King’s pupils who are not already Art Scholars, can now be viewed on the Cleary Blackfriars website.
A charity founded to promote Art education at The King’s School, the Cleary Blackfriars Trust reward students who have demonstrated a scholarly approach to their Art or Photography studies. Recipients will receive financial support towards art materials to further the development of their work.
The website not only showcases the talents of the artists but also gives an insight into how they’ve found their own unique artistic interests in very personal ways. There’s a huge diversity in the areas explored, ranging from Ana’s love of architecture inspired by Bjark Ingels, to Annabel’s interest in Psychogeography—the study of the specific effects of geographical environment on emotion.
What certainly comes through is a sense of joy and fascination with the subject, with Eliza explaining: “Overall, art gives me both the opportunity to be ambitious in what I can hope to achieve and discover, but also it allows me to relax and appreciate things that for many perhaps go unnoticed.”
