A display of artistic flare at the Camden Art Competition
Despite hundreds of entries, we’re delighted to announce that Jubed Miah from Year 13 became a finalist at the annual Camden Art Competition this year.
Amongst the entries was a selection of creative paintings, drawings, collages and sculptures, with Jubed’s ‘Cloaks’ entry impressing the judges, some of whom were from The Wallace Collection, a national museum home to some of Europe’s finest collections of art.
Jubed is currently developing his portfolio and his piece was developed as part of his BTEC in Art and Design course. He hopes to go onto Central St Martins College of Art and Design to study Foundation Art and Design before going on to a Fine Art degree.
Congratulations to Jubed and the Art and Design department who excelled in this year’s exam results with a huge 91% of students getting A*-C grades at GCSE; a fantastic achievement and testament to the hard work and dedication of staff and students.
I took part in a project called ‘Migration’ with Tate Modern and Central St Martins College of Art and Design. The brief required me to create something that doesn’t exist, but relating to my background. I chose to relate my piece to the place where I originally come from. They do a lot of weaving there so I decided to weave cork to make a cloak. I have a huge passion for Art and Design because I am able to express my creativity through my work. My enthusiastic and supportive teachers always inspire me to use my imagination and be as creative as possible and this project was no exception. Jubed Miah
