Year 12 Art Student Presents at Royal Academy of Arts
Yesterday one of our Year 12 art students, Magdelena (pictured below), presented her research on the work of Francis Bacon at the Royal Academy of Arts as part of ARTiculation.
ARTiculation is a nationally-acclaimed public speaking initiative designed to promote the appreciation and discussion of visual culture. ARTiculation is open to young people aged between 14 and 23, regardless of background or experience, and develops their confidence and ability to express their opinions, thoughts and conclusions about art.
As part of the annual ARTiculation Prize for those aged between 16 and 19, students are invited to each deliver a ten-minute presentation to an audience about a work of art, architecture or an artefact. Adjudicators are asked to assess each presentation as a whole, looking at content, structure, delivery and the speaker’s original approach and unique potential. The winners are invited to present at Cambridge University.
Magdalena performed her presentation at the Royal Academy of Arts, speaking about Francis Bacon’s Triptych 1973. “Magdalena analysed the work beautifully and allowed us to view the work in new ways,” said Eliza Bonham Carter, Head of the Royal Academy Schools.
Founded in 1768 , the Royal Academy of Arts is a world class institution that promotes the creation, enjoyment and appreciation of the visual arts through exhibitions, education and debate.
