We are pleased to announce that 1st year Visual Arts student Lauren Curry was awarded the Haworth Life Drawing Prize 2017.  Lauren was selected as in addition to attending and engaging fully with the Haworth Trust Life Class series over two trimesters her work showed a marked development over the course of the year and her best work was of a very high standard.  The prize will give Lauren the opportunity to travel to a European country to study artworks in major galleries and museums. Previous winner Steph Grundy undertook her study trip in Rome and had an amazing time whilst there.
