May Hill inspirations

Our Year 12 Fine Art students showcased their artwork recently at May Hill’s Celebration day on June 13th. Students were invited by organiser Anne Charnock to submit work inspired by May Hill to be displayed alongside professional local artists. Visitors were impressed by the superb standard of art work from Newent’s outstanding art department. The paintings of Lydia Armstrong, Emily Dowle, Harriet Hurley and Megan Farrell were admired throughout the day and Megan Farrell received a number of offers to buy her work there and then! The event was organised by The National Trust as a celebration of the beautiful, treasured landmark of May Hill which has inspired many poets and artists to create work. 2015 is the centenary of Edward Thomas’ poem Words, which he was inspired to write on May Hill.
