IMG_4838Mayor of Hillingdon Councillor Michael Markham with art competition winner Kamaria Ameera Castang, in front of her work.Art on the theme of Hillingdon borough was the subject of a competition judged by its Mayor Councillor Michael Markham and Mayoress Mrs Rosemary Markham.

The pieces by students from Uxbridge College taking the BTEC Level 1 course in Art & Design included paintings, photography, graphic designs, textiles and sculpture. Among the work were paintings of Uxbridge landmarks such as The Market House, a photographic collage featuring Windsor Street and the new flats above The Mall Pavilions, and a pair of shoes decorated with a logo featuring the letters ‘UXB’.

The winner was Kamaria Ameera Castang (17), with her screen-printed Tube map-themed t-shirt.

Speaking to the students, Councillor Markham said: “I am passionate about art and I have long championed the arts movement because I know that within all of us there is a huge amount of creativity. What you have done has shown me it is possible for someone in their first year to develop the skills so they can express themselves and so other people can benefit from what they have created. What I have seen here today is a delight and you should be thrilled with the results.

”Seth Maximen, Art & Design Lecturer, said: “It was a real honour to have the Mayor here to judge the competition, especially as art is clearly a special area of interest for him. Many of the Level 1 entrants had little or no experience of producing creative work before coming to Uxbridge College – but they have produced some really impressive pieces which show how much they have learned and developed over the year.

”The art was exhibited as part of Uxbridge College’s Creative Week which covered all creative and media arts courses.
