Four guest speakers will discuss their artistic professions with students at CedarBridge Academy as part of the Harvey Cooper awards on December 12.

The annual awards, which started in 2019, are an inter-school art competition for students aged 12 to 19,

This year’s awards theme is, ‘I Think I See A Pattern Here’.

The four speakers, who will deliver 10 to 15-minute presentations, are Avril Rose Zuill [jewellery designer], Chikira Smith [Nail Technician], James Cook [Tattoo Artist], and Rael Simons [Make-up artist]. The event starts at 10 am.

Margot Harvey, the competition organiser, told Bernews: “I’ve put together a team of artists who are highly skilled, passionate about what they do, who are going to talk to students about their career path and show examples of their work.

“Each speaker will discuss how they chose their profession and show multiple examples of their creative process and designs from start to finish.”

Each school entering the art competition is guaranteed three spaces at the Gallery Show at Brew on Front Street from today [December 5] to Saturday, January 14.

Art teachers at each school have chosen the best three artists to represent the school.

Schools with middle and high schools have fourth and fifth places reserved for M2 and M3 students. There are also ten places reserved for home-school students.

Online voting is from today until next Thursday [December 15], when the winners will be announced via a Zoom meeting. All artwork will be for sale.

There are two prize categories: Judges’ Awards [$1,000 for first place, $500 for second place and $250 for third place] and People’s Choice Awards [$1,000 for high school first place, $100 for middle school first place].
