What will it look like?
Join us on the journey!
There's something primal about it. It's innate, the need to make marks. That's why, when you're a child, you scribble.
Why the focus on arts?
- We need space! The JPC was built for a three-form entry school and we have been four-form entry since 2006.
- Textiles are inspired by fine art, photography and fashion are linked, design technology influences ceramics - the subjects connect and our spaces will too!
- Photography shoots are spilling out into the main studio.
- Digital photography and art present a completely new discipline since the JPC was conceived and space is needed for our Apple Macs and IT tools.
- Girls’ canvas sizes are restricted due to the display space – they want to 'go large'!
- The 6th Form ‘Shed’ for private art work is well-loved and well-used but is small and can be chilly.
The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls.
