Tuscany Art

We are delighted to announce that six year 13 pupils, alongside Mr James Bowland, Head of Art, have just returned from an inspirational week exploring the Renaissance period, producing ambitious costumes and drawing from the Tuscan landscape, having been successful in securing a place on the prestigious Italian Art education tour for Cheshire schools.

Pupils Hannah Ashdown, Isabella Ashdown, Minnie Leahy, Suki Le Hunte, Hatty Moss and Paige Warrington all submitted applications back in May this year and following a rigorous interview, with a scrutiny of their portfolio, all six pupils were offered a place on the tour.

Many pupils who attend the tour, which has run since 1984, have used the opportunity as a spring board to gain places at Ruskin, Oxford and the Royal Academy, London.

Hannah Ashdown, said, 'It is a life changing experience, one that will stay with me forever.' Similarly Isabella Ashdown explained 'It was an incredibly challenging week that required commitment and confidence, but the reward is an exciting sketchbook full of work.'

On his first teaching trip to Tuscany, Mr Bowland stated; 'I am incredibly proud to have had the opportunity to work with such talented students from across the county. Furthermore, to see our pupils rise to the challenge and produce such brave and assured work is a privilege and I cannot wait to see where this experience leads our next generation of artists.'

Following the week immersed in Italy pupils Hatty Moss and Paige Warrington were awarded
Best Costume in their respective groups, Minnie Leahy won the Best Sketchbook and Suki Le Hunte was presented with the Art History award.
