Millie wins the Copley Award
Millie's prize includes a Lowry workshop for our Year 5 children.
Millie Andrews from Year 5 has won the Copley Prize. As well as having her work on display, Millie will go to the Lowry in January for an art workshop with her friends from Year 5
The award was established in 2013, as a creative way to get young children into art, and to help develop their talent. This is something we are passionate about at St Andrew's.
Millie was invited to The Lowry for a tour of The Lowry Galleries with her family and to hang her work in the gallery’s permanent LS Lowry exhibition.
Her work will remain on display for the next year, alongside the famous works it was inspired by.
The Copley Prize invites children to recreate their own modern-day versions of LS Lowry’s work, in ways that represent the world that they live in, and to capture images of the environment around them, just as Lowry did.
Coinciding with the unveiling of Millie’s work in the galleries many works by this year’s runners up are also on display in The Copley cases.
Jennifer Riding, Director of Learning & Engagement at The Lowry, said:“We were so excited to welcome Millie to hang her own artwork in The Lowry Galleries.
“It is really important for us to celebrate and support the creativity of children and young people, especially at a time when there is a lot of pressure on children to ‘catch up’
“The Copley Prize provides opportunities for children who may not see themselves as artists to discover and share their creative talents.”
