Each year, a number of Margate schools take part in the Neal Foundation art competition. We are delighted to announce, that once again, we have been awarded joint first place! Art and creativity are at the heart of our school and having a rich arts education is vitally important for all of our children. We are so very proud of the work that each and every child created for the completion. The judges were blown away with the level of skill and creativity on display.
Head judge Marion Hitch commented "This exhibition has two powerful characteristics – the sheer volume and variety of art on offer and the regular references to universally recognised artists of yesteryear and today. These pupils have a broad, exciting and successful artistic life within its walls which happily reaches out into their local community. There is no doubt it also reaches into each child, supporting their self-esteem and sense of well-being. Well done Drapers Mills!"
