The art department had an artist visit this week in conjunction with the Sanderstead Arts Society. Acclaimed artist Benjamin Senior conducted a full day painting workshop with the Year 9 cohort.

The day proved to be very productive and gave the GCSE students a fresh insight into alternative approaches to painting.

The students were all very happy with the workshop and quite proud of the work created over the course of the day.

As the students lead into Year 10, the work created during Year 9 will allow them to further expand their skill set and create a body of work that is constantly developing and improving throughout the course.

Artist visits are integral to the development of the students’ work and not only create a space for the students to make work but also allow the students to meet with artists from the community.

The teachers and students of the Art Department would like to extend a sincere thank you to Ben and his team for a great day.

Mr E Barry
