Artist Helen Brown inspires art students to excel
On Thursday 7th June, Sackville School Art Department received a visit from a professional artist and printmaker. Based in a printmaking studio in Brighton, Helen Brown came up for a whole day workshop involving fifty Year 9 GCSE art students. It was a highly productive day, with all students producing a portfolio of dry-point etchings using both black and white and colour.
The art teachers were also trained by Helen in the use and maintenance of a specialist etching press. This was bought for the school last year using a grant from TASEG (The Art Society East Grinstead). They also funded Helen’s visit.
Sackville School would like to thank TASEG for their continued generosity in funding the creative curriculum at the school.
