We are delighted to have partnered with Andover College to deliver a new project with Winton Community Academy entitled ‘Casting Connections’, supported by The Arts Society Test Valley. Workshops were held over the Autumn term 2017 at both the New Art Centre and Andover College to ensure positive introductions to local cultural spaces and the possibilities of further education for the students involved.
Year 9 students had the opportunity to take inspiration from the sculptures at Roche Court during their research visit:
Students then used the sculptures and their research during their visit to Andover College through the creation of their own artworks. During this workshop students were introduced to new processes such as casting and etching:
The project culminated in an exciting exhibition of the students’ own sculptures in the new exhibition space at Andover College in December 2017.
