Lockdown art

27th April 2020

One of our talented students Rowan Briggs Smith has created a piece of pavement art outside the college.

The 15-year-old has adapted the famous Kitchener 'Britain Needs You' wartime poster as her response to the Coronavirus pandemic.

She has chalked two images which meet each other on the zebra crossing in front of the main building, one representing the school and the other the pupils with the message 'Missing You'.

Rowan said: "I know my friends are missing being at school, and that the teachers are missing us too. I wanted to use my art as a voice to acknowledge that, and using the crossing at school felt like the perfect place to make an artwork."

Rowan worked on the project on Sunday morning and the artwork was clearly visible when the small number of staff and students arrived on Monday morning. But with rain forecast, it is not expected to last long!

Luckily she made a video of the process which is available here https://vimeo.com/412240537 as well as the pictures below.
