Clevedon pupil’s work in Saatchi Gallery
A TALENTED student from Clevedon School has won a competition to have her art work displayed in London’s Saatchi Gallery.
Beci Dymond, aged 18, drew a portrait of a family friend which so impressed the judges that she was invited to the gallery to view her work.
Beci’s portrait was one of 20 to be chosen from more than 19,000 entries in the Sunday Telegraph Art Prize.
Her painting did not win first prize but Beci and her teachers are delighted that her work is on display in London and that Clevedon School has been represented nationally.

Art teacher Kelly Hawkins said: “ There were only two state schools in the show and we were the only school in the south west to be selected.
“Just to be in the prestigious gallery, having never entered a competition before, is amazing and very inspiring for our students. We are very proud of Beci.”
