Tallulah achieves success in Museum of Modern Art for Wales national competition

A gifted artist has secured a notable achievement from a prestigious national competition.

Tallulah Batley, a Year 12 pupil at Rydal Penrhos, was entered into the Museum of Modern Art for Wales competition, which showcases the brightest young artistic talent in the country and also holds an exhibition detailing the winning entries later this year.

The newly appointed joint-Deputy Head Girl produced a truly incredibly hand painting as part of her contribution to the competition, which drew rave reviews from adjudicators thanks to the detailed nature and overall quality of the piece.

This resulted in Tallulah securing runner-up in the U16 category from the competition, which follows on from the success of fellow Art scholar Elysia Gilman, who took home the U18 title in 2018.

Tallulah is almost halfway through her A-level Art studies, with department head Mark Sherrington holding high hopes for the pupil as she prepares to embark on her final year as a Sixth Form pupil at Rydal Penrhos from September.

Senior School Head Sally Ann Harding, said: “Tallulah is a wonderfully talented individual who has thrived as part of Art provision under the expert guidance of Mr Sherrington and Mrs Morris.

“The consistent high-quality of her work is something that has to be seen to be believed, and Tallulah can be incredibly proud of attaining such a high finish in such a well-respected competition.”
