Creative boys’ work sells like hot cakes in Penallt

October 1st, 2015

Creative boys sold their colourful masterpieces at joint schools exhibition ‘Peg it Up’ during the Art in Penallt festival.

Pupils from Years 8 to 12 at Monmouth School joined forces with students from HMSG and Monmouth Comprehensive to display nearly 150 works of art on Friday, September 25.

Work was sold in aid of Monmouth’s Attik Youth Centre.

The exhibition was very well attended and several pieces were bought by members of the public.

Throughout the day people were voting for their favourite artwork.

First prize went to Victoria from HMSG for her painting of a strawberry, second prize to HMSG pupil Fay for her drawing of a horse and the third prize went to Harry from Monmouth School for his ‘Cultural Still-Life’ lino print.

Several pupils visited the Art in Penallt festival over the weekend, watching demonstrations by well-respected artists such as Walter Keeler, and trying their hand at throwing, assisted by Monmouth School art staff.
