Thanks to our Art Technician, John Fletcher, some of our students now have their artwork on display at the John Lewis store in York.
On visiting the John Lewis café, John noticed that they used small jam jars which would be perfect for providing students with ink sets to use in class. The staff kindly washed out a number of jars for John to take away, so as a thank you, he has since worked with the store team to provide artwork for the café walls and windows.
The window artwork has been created by our Year 8 students who designed a Celtic-style illuminated letter after studying Celtic Art, Year 10s concentrated on the themes of ‘Expressive Portraiture’ (pictured) and some of the Year 11s have now got their external exam pieces on display.
We’re hoping to work more with John Lewis next year!
