Our students are again taking part in a variety of activities, both inside and outside of school, which helps them connect effectively with the big world of Art and Design.
Bernie Murphy, a local textile designer, was invited into the school to run a set of half day workshops with some of our creative Yr.12 and 14 students. They worked very effectively and made the most of this opportunity to develop new technical skills. Our thanks must go to Bernie as she so successfully managed to help so many students develop worthwhile pieces within such a tight timeframe.
· Jamie Baldrick was one of a small select group of local A level students to work with noted Irish sculpture Philip McFadden in a workshop organised by the Gordon Gallery.
· Caroline Gilliland and Jake Desmond, both ex-pupils, have been doing a great job working after school with Junior School pupils in both the Photography and Film Clubs.
· Four of our current A2 students - Anna Kilgore, Inge Swiegers, Laura McElhinney and Jamie Baldrick have been building up their portfolios by going to the value for money night classes at the N W Regional College each Thursday night.
In the coming weeks of the spring term we hope to see some of our Senior students take part in a set of Architecture workshops funded by The Architecture Foundation, London.
