Artistry in Speech

Artistry in Speech | OIC Brighton - Artistry in Speech
Artistry in Speech
Articulation is a national public speaking competition run by The National Gallery.  It engages young people with art and develops their confidence and ability to express their opinions, thoughts and conclusions. A programme of activities takes place nationally and, increasingly internationally. 
We are extremely proud of our four students that took part in this competition. These students had chosen and researched famous pieces of art from Giotto to Banksy, and spoke confidently about their own interpretations and responses. The judges praised the speakers for their preparation and use of storytelling, ultimately rewarding Mia, Year 12, first prize for her passionate defence of Edward Hopper's 'Soir Bleu' (1914). The whole event was testament to the power of looking in depth and detail, and the way such observation can change our perception. Mia will now proceed to represent OIC Brighton in the regional competition.
