Artist In Residence

 
 
 
 
 

It is the start of the second year of our Artist in residence at Belfairs Academy.

John becoming our artist in residency has been unique and a first for us. When John was first approached to become our practicing artist in residence, we agreed we did not want a job description, it needed to be embryonic.

Over the first year John as worked with our students developing their artistic talents with their work now being displayed on the walls along with John's work. He is currently constructing a Totem Pole in the academy garden to show the students how sculpture does not just happen in a classroom.

John attends all our event sand if you want to come and meet our artist in residence and have a tour of his work and see the impact on our young people don't hesitate to contact the academy. John also has a studio in Old Leigh.
