Winter wonderland

A new exhibition went up last weekend, featuring work done by a group of amaeur artists attending a workshop run by local artists Jaki Bogg and Sue Mackay. The theme is very appropriately on views and images of winter. The artists have used a range of media, including felt, collage and textiles.

'I am proud to be'

We recently exhibited a wonderful collection of cards from children of the Westminster Academy, an international business and enterprise academy. The intake is incredibly multi-cultural, multi-lingual and diverse with 89% of the students speaking English as an additional language. The exhibition was done as part of a Year 9 (13 year olds) project, with students drawing or painting an image about the country they felt associated with. Students also wrote something about themselves on the backs of the cards, making a fascinating record.
