As 'The Art and Design Room students'
My ethos is Art for All. My application is to celebrate the fantastic work of my students including GCSE Art mostly of whom are home educated. This is an opportunity to share their work with families as well as the local community.
The name Art and Design Room itself immediately suggests and evokes clear memories that span generations. In school there was always ‘the art room’, a room that had different guises and purposes for different people. On the surface it would be a place of creativity, discovery and excitement but, beyond that ‘the art room’ is often a place of sanctuary and peace, an outlet , a haven or a place of refuge from either the demands of the academic curriculum, but often, beyond that, a refuge from the demands of life. The art room is somehow intrinsically ‘holistic’. It is this ethos that we wish to embed in ‘the art and design room’ providing 'Art for All'
Each student has a preferred medium, this can be anything from coloured animal portraits to larger acrylic paintings and textile pieces.
