Cumbernauld College visit

S5/6 pupils enjoyed the opportunity to visit Cumbernauld College last week to participate in a Portfolio Event with Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art in Dundee.  Pupils met with tutors from the both colleges to hear about the courses they offer and were able to see successful portfolios.  This provided pupils with lots of visual inspiration and ideas for their next unit as well as Advanced Higher themes. Pupils also participated in a workshop with staff from New College Lanarkshire to create a mini sketchbook. 

Architecture workshop

S3 Art and design pupils participated in a fantastic Architecture workshop with Derek Hill from Strathclyde University.  Pupils worked really hard to develop spaces and buildings, before collaborating as a class to build a city.  Pupils were encouraged to solve problems, justify their decision making and be creative.  Well done to all involved.
