Cas Holmes artist visit to LPS

On the 23rd May 2018, artist Cas Holmes visited Linton Park.  Cas is a professional artist who specialises in textile, paper and mixed-media and year 10 found her input extremely valuable as they progress with their current course ‘Beyond the Surface’.

As she left the school grounds Cas commented to our art teacher Claire Barrett-Smith ‘You have really lucked out there, it’s an amazing school that you work in with lovely students.’

She was really impressed that the students listened attentively to her introduction, asked mature, thoughtful questions and worked really hard to achieve great results – she thought they were very creative and had a good sense of design with regards to the way they developed colour schemes in their work.

It was also noted how polite the students were and Cas expressed delight that they still had a little ‘feistiness’ about them!
