Why do I like this so much? I think it is because Neil Gaiman is someone whose work I admire and the fact that he is ‘normal’. You might have heard of Coraline or Stardust, but Gaiman has a rich catalogue of titles including graphic novels. Please let me know what you think of the speech or if you are interested in doing some drawings based on your favourite books. Mrs Chambers

Free Art workshops!

Many galleries and colleges have workshops and clubs aimed at 11-18 year olds. They are often free and a lot of fun. Here are some opportunities that have come to our attention for the summer term: Bradford College Hepworth Gallery, Wakefield. Work with animator Sheryl Jenkins to create a short animated film that you can take home at the end of the day. Showreel selection from Sheryl Jenkins on Vimeo. If you want information about any of the workshops, please see your Art Teacher.
