Arts Volunteering – 2023

Arts Volunteering 2023 – Poppy Hinde

Poppy Hinde was our Bursary Award winner for the Best Foundation Student 2023-24 at Warwickshire College of Art, based at Royal Leamington Spa College.

Poppy’s work included notebooks, oil paintings and weaving, which was shown in the School of Arts end of year exhibition. 

One visitor was so impressed she decided to buy one of the project’s oil paintings for her house, giving Poppy her first professional sale. 

A total of 42 students on the college’s Art and Design course were in the running for the award, with the originality of Poppy’s work and her dedication to learning winning her an unanimous first place. 

The bursary award will be given over a three-year period to support Poppy during her studies at the celebrated UAL Camberwell College of Arts, where she will study a BA in Fine Art: Drawing.

She said: “I was delighted to have won the award, it is great to be recognised by my tutors and I’m really grateful to The Arts Society for the award and the bursary. The bursary funds will help with building up my arts supplies and materials throughout my course”.
