We have now hosted two art workshops with artist Sadie Edgington, working with our talented Year 8 students as part of the Start project, sponsored by the Jack Petchey Foundation, Children and the Arts charity, and the Saatchi Gallery. The students were fantastic, working together to create sculptural pieces representing the theme of ‘Inclusion’ and then creating stop-motion animations featuring these artworks. Sadie and Roz Logan, visiting from the Saatchi Gallery, were so impressed by the students’ ability to think creatively, embrace challenges with an open mind, and work collaboratively. The project has served as a great reminder of how art can be used to empower young people to explore important themes and ideas. The animations they have created will be shown at an exhibition at the Saatchi Gallery in July. We can’t wait!
