Artist In Residence

14th January 2015

How to Draw Your Pet is the first short course to launch the exciting new Artist in Residence Programme at Tenbury High Ormiston Academy.

On Monday 12 January Katie Powis an exceptionally talented local artist, and Mary Jordan (Art Teacher) delivered a short course on ‘How to Draw your Pet.’ This took place after school and was very well attended. It proved a very good opportunity for Parents and their children to work together on a single project.  Indeed ‘Dads and Daughters’ really enjoyed the experience.

Earlier Katie had worked with Year 10 and Year 11 Art pupils looking at Surrealism and Fantasy Art another of Katie’s art interests.  Katie has also worked with Year 9 Art students drawing portraits of African animals. This will form part of their African Art project which will be on display in Tenbury later in the year.

Throughout the year we will be inviting artists who work in a variety of different media to take part in this programme.

Take a look at some photos from the course here.
