ARTiculation 2019 is a national Art History competition where Sixth Form pupils are invited to deliver a speech about an artwork of their choice. We had internal heats this week in the theatre at Mill Hill School, where the following pupils spoke about artworks dating from the 15th century to the present day. Max J (McClure), Mariia D (Murray), Dylan R (Cedars), Jay J (Priestley), Paris Q (Murray), Chess G (Atkinson) and Ruby A (Atkinson) all took part confidently and enthusiastically. Our speakers delivered their talks with passion and showed they were highly knowledgeable about their artworks. They analysed the works with perceptive and clear points and some posed intriguing arguments.

We were joined by Phillip King PRA, OM (class of 1953) and Isabel Gilchrist, OM (class of 2016) in judging what became a very close competition. We were especially honoured to have Phillip King’s participation in this event and his insightful contribution was highly valued. Phillip shared memories of his time at Mill Hill Art Department in the 1950s which offered a great perspective on life in 2019. After much deliberation, the judges awarded Chess 3rd Prize, Jay was awarded 2nd prize and Ruby walked away with 1st prize – she is our winner of ARTiculation 2019. Ruby will now go on to speak at the next stage of the competition, at the regional heat at the Light Box Gallery in Woking on February 8. We wish her the best of luck. We are incredibly proud of Ruby and all the speakers in their participation and achievements.
