Ashley Jackson visits school

On Friday the 30th of September we were delighted to have one of our very successful Guest Artists Day with the famous Yorkshire Artist Ashley Jackson.

The school have had a long association with Ashley who has been delivering workshops to the school for over 20 years.  We were delighted to have him back again this year to inspire all 130 pupils who were fortunate enough to work with him during the practical workshops on the day.  We were excited to have the following local schools join us to take part in an inspiring practical workshop: Tickhill St Mary's, Saltersgate, St Wilfreds Branton, St Oswalds, Hatchellwood, Townfield Primary, St Nortberts Primary, Auckley Primary, Sheep Dip Lane Primary, Hayfield Lane Primary, Bessacar Primary, Rossington St Michaels and Shaw Wood Primary School.

The pupils were fully engaged and produced some amazing work under the tuition of Ashley.  Pupils and staff had the opportunity to talk freely with the artist and also had photo opportunities.

It was a delightful and memorable day where lots of creative minds were challenged and new skills and techniques were acquired. 

Thank you to everyone who was involved in the successful day and we look forward to continuing our partnerships with our local primary schools, promoting 'Excellence in the Arts'.
