Students from Halesowen College have been working in the print rooms of Wolverhampton School of Art. With the support of Andy Roberts and John Clementson the group produced a range of 3 colour screen prints on the theme of jazz. Working with Simon Harris, students had their first experience of making single colour, intaglio prints using the impressive heritage presses dating from the original Wolverhampton School of Art.
One of our final year Illustration students has embarked on a reportage project, documenting the School of Art throughout the academic year.
Nicholas Sims creates large scale drawings on site, capturing the essence of everyday activity at the School of Art. This body of work will be exhibited at the Degree show and Artsfest in June 2019.

"Studying at Wolverhampton School of Art is aspirational"
said Gillian Townsend, tutor from Dudley College, after her students visited the The University of Wolverhampton and experienced workshops focussing on different types of image making through screen printing, drawing, photography and via working in three dimensions on designs for fashion.
"Being able to experience the potential of so many art and design disciplines, in a purpose built art school, in the heart of the Midlands, is an opportunity not to be missed" she continued.
Within their introduction to life at the University of Wolverhampton, Dudley College students also listened to head of School, Maggie Ayliffe speak about the heritage of the Art School and visited the School of Art's new 'Gallery Cafe.'
