Your profile As a trained artist I feel it is essential for every child to be involved in art. Everything we see and use had been made and designed by an artist of some form. It is becoming more critical for Colleges, Universities and employers to enrol students with creative backgrounds, due to their different creative, innovative thinking and problem solving techniques, which have all been developed through the world of art.

Showcasing the student’s successes and achievement in and around school is paramount. While developing, nurturing and encouraging students to experience new skills and processes.

My aspirations for each student who joins the Art academy is they will gain a Bronze award in art, which will commence after half term.

Weekly provisions All activities will be running every other week on Thursday evenings. These will include contributing to a collective art piece ‘The Hive’ which will show each students positive lockdown experience. They will then begin to develop their skills through the bronze arts award.
Successes As the new Art and Design academy leader, I want to build on past success. Develop the student’s ability and creativity.
