John Downton Awards

Every year The John Downton Arts award takes place showcasing the strongest art work of students in Kent. These awards were first organised in 2000 at the request of Miss Hilda Downton – sister of the celebrated Kentish artist, poet and philosopher, to recognise the achievements of the young artists of Kent in the fields of painting and drawing.

This year of course is different and the show is being presented as a virtual exhibition.  The really good news is that we have been represented by some of our very own superb young Highworth artists.  The students selected are Rosie Creighton, Bethany Mitchell, Phoenix Brown, Hannah Rolfe, Dora Pursey, Bethan Gubb and Isabelle Coombs.

We are delighted to confirm that Phoenix Brown in Year 13 won the 17-18 yrs category for the best drawing prize. Congratulations to Phoenix for being in attendance and speaking briefly on screen giving an account of her digital artwork 'Hypernormalisation' to the judging panel and online audience (image displayed below).
