14 year old Michael – not his real name – has been learning piano for a number of years supported by a bursary for THF. From a very challenging background, he has persisted with his lessons under a gifted and dedicated teacher and recently achieved Grade 5! Very well done Michael.
Meanwhile Paul – not his real name – whose complaining neighbours prevented him from playing the drums enough to achieve his exam ambitions, was able to use the electronic drum kit from a THF bursary to practice enough to gain his Grade 8 recently. His mother wrote:
“He took his Grade 8 drum exam last Thursday and I am very proud to say that he achieved a Merit of 83%. Without the Foundation’s contribution it would have been very difficult for him to achieve this well-deserved result, so again please accept our very grateful thanks.”
This year, THF was able to support two very talented artists to attend the renowned Foundation Art Course at KEVICC. Both passed the course with flying colours!
Maya is on her way to Wimbledon College of Art to study Fine Art after completeing her Foundation course in fine style. with her focus in her final presentation on portraiture, her peices made a big impact in the exhibition.
Joe leaves Devon for Nottingham Trent University to study photography after working extremely hard at his successful Final Exhibition.
He uses a remarkable technique to blur and morph his prints and devised a compelling video installation on the subject of memory and image.
Well done everyone.
