Year 9 students were treated to a stone carving workshop run by local artist and stone carver, Anne-Marie Scott, on 13 July.
The interactive workshop, donated by local creative arts charity, The Helen Foundation, saw students creating artwork from designs created during lessons. Students worked in pairs having chosen a particular design to work on and used special stone-carving tools to complete their projects.
Year 9 student, Abigail Lister said: “The workshop has been great; it has given us all a new way of expressing art. We have never covered this area before and to have the opportunity to work with a professional has been amazing.”
Teacher of Art and workshop leader, Beatrice Newell, said: “The stone carving workshop has been a wonderful opportunity for our students to create alongside a working practitioner to develop their creative skills. Huge thanks must go The Helen Foundation who kindly donated this workshop which has allowed our outstanding students to broaden their artistic horizons.”
