Pioneering pupils visit local schools to help deliver art classes

A selection of our pupils have visited Downlands School, Hanford School and St Nicholas School in Child Okeford over the last few weeks as part of their pioneering programme at Bryanston.

The visit to Downlands School involved Bryanston pupils helping younger children create hanging monkey artwork to represent The Monkey Temple in Nepal. Downlands School Headteacher James Rielly commented: “We heard really good reports from the staff working alongside them and I would love it if we could have your support for this annual event in future.”

The visit to Hanford involved helping children explore their creativity using silk clay, which resulted in a vast array of wonderful individual outcomes.

Teacher of Art Gary Cedeira helped organise the visits and commented: “Our pupils were enamoured by the experience and hope to return to help with future classes. It was great to see Art valued so highly at both schools, and in such a visible way around the corridors and in the classrooms.”
