Budding Conway artists create art for auction
Friday 27 February 2015
Pupils from Ark Conway created a beautiful piece of art, and won a place at an auction, alongside £500 for maths resources.
The artwork was auctioned at a fundraising event this week for Mathematics Mastery, in partnership with Bank of America Merill Lynch and raised over £100,000. The painting was displayed at the prestigious Sothebys auction house in London, alongside famous names such as Henry Moore and David Hockney.
Pupils across many other Ark academies entered the competition and it was a huge success, with Bank of America generously making a surprise gift of £650,000 to support the programme.
Congratulations to all of the pupils in Lewis class who put in so much effort to create this wonderful piece of art. We look forward to having a canvas copy to display at school soon.
