On Thursday 23rd November St Bede's and St Joseph's Art Department proudly hosted, for the second year, the Royal Academy of Arts Outreach program. To our knowledge we are the only School in Bradford to have welcomed the Royal Academy to work with our students. The program took the form of a one day life drawing workshop held under the guidance of Royal Academy Artist Paul Brandford who is a previous winner of the Jerwood painting prize. http://paulbrandford.co.uk/ .
Thirty of our most able young artist from across KS4 and KS5 took part. The workshop focused on creativity through life drawing and the students worked very hard throughout the day resulting in a portfolio of exploratory drawings. Mr Brandford commented how impressed he was with the students personal motivation and developing skills. This was a fantastic opportunity for our students to develop expressive drawing.
