Local art showcases
December 2017 was a very busy month for the art department. It began with students taking part in the Festival of Angels held at St Margaret’s Church in Brotton. A range of students designed and produced some large scale work depicting different scenes, these were showcased in the church alongside work from other schools and the community. A selection of our student’s work was also designed and created to be displayed in an exhibition at Redcar Heart, alongside work from other schools.
