Budding Artists Visit Local Gallery

Posted in Homepage, News - October 31st, 2017

Years 9 and 10 GCSE Art students visited The Grange Gallery in Rottingdean to take part in a workshop with landscape painter Raffaella Appleby.  Students viewed the paintings with the artist and found out about the famous art dynasty that she is from; she is the great granddaughter of the Victorian artist, William Nicholson, who once had a studio at the Grange and granddaughter of Ben Nicholson, the British modernist.

The students then made their own responses to the work using oil and conte crayons. The painter was very impressed by our students’ questions and by the quality of their work.
