Art in the Heart

Many thanks to Year 7 students for creating the wonderful bunting used at the first ever Art in the Heart Festival in Redcar on 01/02 October 2016. Over 150 students made heart shaped drawings based on their ideas of what they love about living in the North East. These were then strung together by artist in residence Meg Ashley and hung in the main hall at the Redcar and Cleveland Leisure and Community Heart.

art-in-the-heart-2Event organiser Philip Boville was delighted by the bright and diverse nature of the images and received countless complimentary comments from artists and visitors alike. Over 700 visitors came to the art event, which it is hoped will become an annual event.

As a reward for their beautiful work, Phil has offered to hold a painting workshop with students from the art department.
