Year 10 Art students get creative at Liverpool Hope University - 14/03/2018

On Tuesday 6th March 2018, a group of Year 10 Art students at University Academy Warrington (UAW) were selected to attend a taster day at Liverpool Hope University.  Students had the opportunity to sit in on an Art history lecture and experience a workshop based on sculpture, textile print and fine art painting classes.

The group of students in attendance were invited due to expressing an interest in extending their artistic studies at college or University, and got the chance to see what a day in the life of an Art student would really be like.

Mrs Mitchell, Teacher of Art at the Academy, said “This was such a valuable experience, collaborating with other students and taking part in a range of workshops delivered by University staff allowed UAW students to see how indecency plays a huge role when taking on these creative art and design courses.”

Shanza Jengir, a Year 10 GCSE Art student at UAW, added: “I really enjoyed today and it has made me think more seriously about taking an Art and design course at University.”
