Cherry Cup 2018

The Cherry Cup was founded by John Cherry, a Hornsea artist who made his living designing and painting heraldic shields. John also ran an art club at Hornsea School. His wife Thelma, who was also an artist and a member of Hornsea Art Society, donated the cup for the School Art Prize upon John's death. The Cherry Cup competition has been running since 1995.

Students from year 7 -10 had the opportunity to enter a piece of art work; any scale, medium or subject. Judging took place by two members of the Hornsea Art Society.

Congratulations to all students who entered; the four winners and the best of the rest'. A special congratulations to the overall winner; year 10 student Millie S. Her repeat portrait piece demonstrates a high level of skill. She will be rewarded with £50 and presented with the Cherry Cup
