CGS Student successful in art competition

Posted on 30th June 2015

Congratulations to Anna Carter in Year 8 who successfully entered an Art competition (in partnership with Wild in Art and Lincoln Business Improvement Group) earlier this year. The competition aimed to create 3D Baron models to promote ‘The Barons’ Trail’ around Lincoln, which is designed to celebrate the historic occasion of the 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta.


Anna submitted her design for one of the Barons which was then judged alongside many other submissions and found to be successful. Her design was selected by a sponsor – Stagecoach East Midlands. As a result Anna then painted her design and her 2m tall ‘Anything Goes Baron’ is now to be found on the streets of Lincoln, (1 of 25 Barons’) as part of the Lincoln Barons’ Charter Trail. Anna’s inspiration – ‘ the anything goes baron is my wild card. He is quirky and full of character! I was inspired to do a bit of a funky design by today’s trends: bright, bold, beautiful.’
