Aimed at providing a platform for SCT students display their creative and artistic abilities, an art completion was conducted by the English Language Forum (ELF) last November 8, 2018 in the Self-Access Center.
Five male and twelve female budding artists showcased their skills on the theme “Oman 48 years of glory”. Drawing and coloring for one hour allowed students to uncover their natural talents in sketching and illustrations.
The winners were awarded with prizes and certificates. The judges were Mr. Edward Stallard and Mr. Michael Pendry. The winners of the art competition were:
First Place :
- Laila Mohammed Almaashani
- Iman Alwi Hafidh Ba-Omar
- Waad Ali Alamri
- Nadia Musallam Alawaid
- Al Moutamad Faiz Salim Fadhil
- Ahmed Mustahil Akaak
- Salim Mussalm Jaboob
- Fatima Ali Alawaid
- Amina Said Salim Almaashani
Mr. Salim Al-Mashani, the ELF Chairperson, believed that taking part in the art competition had helped the students develop the right attitude towards a career as an artist. He also mentioned that students can be challenged to move out of their comfort zones in face of a contest like that.
He thanked Mr. Saeed Al-Mashiki, HELC, for his support and all ELF members Ms. Rekha Siby, Ms. Gail Ann Maria Macgowan, Ms. Wendella Francis, and Dr. Claire Orpilla for organizing this event.
