Camden’s Chief Executive commissions talented Regent High School artists
Students studying Art and Design have recently been given an exclusive opportunity to design and create art work for the Chief Executive’s office at the Town Hall in Camden. Working alongside tutors and student ambassadors from one of our many esteemed partners, Central St Martins College of Arts and Design (CSM), students used mark making and drawing techniques to create a collaborative piece which encapsulates different landmarks across Camden. The monochrome art work has been framed and hung above the fireplace in the grade II listed building, which is both a privilege and honour for students as the building is home to inspiring artwork by some of the world’s most renowned artists, including Barbara Hepworth and David Hockney. This is just one example of our commitment to ensuring students are given a wide range of opportunities outside the classroom to develop their skills, passion and learning experiences. Art work created by former student, Shefa Begum, has also been put on display in the office. Shefa has now progressed on to a Foundation Art and Design course at CSM after achieving an impressive Double Distinction on completion of her BTEC level 3 course at Regent High School. A huge well done to all of the art students involved; we hope to give more students an opportunity to create art work for the Chief Executive during the spring term.
