Last week, we welcomed the contemporary artist, Ian Murphy, to our Art Department.

Ian is a contemporary British Fine Artist who gained initial success with selection to the British Young Contemporary Artists in 1985. He is best known for his powerful, tonal drawings and atmospheric, mixed media oil paintings of architectural places.

Students in Years 9 and 10 enjoyed a whole day taking part in an intense and fast paced workshop. Students were introduced to a range of drawing techniques and processes, starting with sketchbook practice through to development strategies and into a finished piece.

Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the day and produced some fantastic artwork.
