Norton Canes School Visit School of Art
Staff and students from Norton Canes School have been welcomed by the Visual Communications department.
Visitors met Maggie Ayliffe who discussed the importance of arts graduates to the UK economy and life at University.
After lunch in the University refectory visitors from Norton Canes went on to undertake workshops linked to their interests in art and design, including, a Visual Communication printmaking session, with subject leader of Visual Communication, John Clementson, Andy Roberts and Josh Grice, Fashion and Textiles with Sharon Watts and the Fashion and Textiles team and Ceramics with Paul Mcallister. Examples for Norton Canes fashion designs are shown here.
"Our students really enjoyed sampling life at University, learning about different art and design disciplines and were particularly fascinated by the technical aspects of printmaking. We've all had a great day at the School of Art and are looking forward to returning to see the Degree Show in June." said Alexina Evans, Art teacher at Norton Canes School.
