Sculpture Workshop inspires our artists

Sculpture Workshop 1Sculpture Workshop 2

Today Southampton City Art Gallery, along with Art UK delivered 2 sculptures from the gallery into our school. Weinvited 22 students to join us to take part in a unique opportunity, to spend a memorable day off timetable in contact, working with and being inspired by high-value well-known art work, enriching their knowledge, skills and confidence working around art.

This took place in coordination with Lower School Arts Week, where the sculptures were an inspiration to discussion, ideas and a photography competition.

At lunchtime  we opened up room 39 as a gallery space for any student or member of staff wishing to come in and view the sculptures up close.

It was an absolutely unique and fascinating day and our thanks go to Selina from Art UK and Jo from Southampton City Art Gallery for all their hard work in making this happen...
