Roding Valley High School student Claudia Ferreira has been named Loughton Young Artist of the Year.
Her award follows exhibitions by students from local schools at Loughton Arts Centre which culminated in a prize-giving evening sponsored by Loughton Town Council.
Claudia, a Year 12 student, submitted her work, ‘Back To Your Routes’ - a pen portrait of her grandfather drawn directly onto a map which was completed as part of her AS-Level study.
The school's Head of Art, David Tisdale, said: "Congratulations to all of the students from the schools who exhibited.
"The work throughout was thoughtful, exciting and beautifully made.
"Particular congratulations go to our prize winners for their truly outstanding achievements."
Other Roding Valley High School students who received awards were Max Tankard (Year 11) and Amy Griffiths (Year 13).
