The ‘Respect’ Project

As part of that project a selected group of enthusiastic artists from year 7 were chosen to take part in a very exciting art project called The ‘Respect’ project.

Year 7 art Students collaborated with year 6 students here on Induction, who benefited from workshops led by professional graffiti artists.

During the day students discussed the moral issues around street art and graffiti culture, and explored the role street art plays in the traditional world of art. Each artist involved then explored their identity and distinguishing personality traits, and finally helped create a word wall in celebration of diversity. Year 6 students have already made their mark, and we look forward to welcoming them formally in September. Until then, we now have a colourful permanent reminder of our new spirited year 7 cohort in our refectory, helping create a supportive and welcoming environment for all.
