Why the Award?
I am often asked .."
Why the art Award ? " The answer is quite simple. In the early 50's, I had the pleasure of being
a pupil at Blundell's School. Whilst I enjoyed all aspects of my education, I have fond memories of the Art Department
and the then Head of Art, William Lyons - Wilson ( 1892 - 1981 ). He taught me all I know about art and the history
of art. He influenced me in all my work since leaving school, especially watercolour painting. He was an
excellent painter and teacher.
In gratitude for my experience; it was in 2003 that I decided to offer
the Estudio Campana Art Award as described below. I am grateful to the school for accepting my offer. From
what I have learned from both the Art Department and past award winners, they also appreciate the gesture in the current format.
What is it?
Every year Estudio Campana encourages
a student from Blundell's School to win the Estudio Campana Art Award.
At present, the award is made on behalf of Estudio Campana by the head of the department selecting the
student that shows future promise in any field of art.
A voucher or art supplies are then awarded to the winning student on Speech Day.
