Open to pupils from Reception to Year 8, the exhibition was an opportunity for each member school to display up to eight pieces of their pupils’ artwork. Bromsgrove was delighted that fifty-one member schools sent artwork for display. The standard of work was incredibly high and the artwork ranged from individual masterpieces, to 2D and 3D work and collaborative pieces.
The Exhibition was launched on Saturday 27th April, with a private view event for Head Teachers and Art Teachers, and on Sunday 28th April for artists and their families. The Exhibition was then open for school visits from Monday 29th April to Friday 10th May. Many participating schools bought groups to the visit the exhibition and take part in artist workshops with visiting artist Mark Lippett. During visits art teachers encouraged their pupils to record artworks that captured their imagination in their sketchbooks and talk about what they found inspirational in front of their classmates.
Bromsgrove School have thoroughly enjoyed hosting the SATIPS National Prep Schools’ Art Exhibition in 2018 and 2019. Next year the exhibition will move to The Royal Masonic School for Girls.
Entry details will be sent to schools in due course, but in the meantime for further information please contact Alayne Parsley on A.Parsley@cheltenhamcollege.org or via the website www.cheltenhamcollege.org/SATIPS.
