Local Artists visit College

As part of our Work Linked Learning provision, we have been inviting local artists in to the College to display their work in our Thriftwood Gallery and to talk to our students about their techniques and what it is like to be an artist.

Our artist for December was Colin Steed, who has been teaching, exhibiting and painting commissions for many years and became a professional in 1998. He has led many courses in this country and abroad and writes for ‘Leisure Painter’ magazine. He is a familiar face to some of our students as he is also a Site Manager at Thriftwood School! On Tuesday 18th December, Colin gave a demonstration of a watercolour painting which the students and staff were enthralled with and was of great benefit to the students.
