Art Technicians

Who We Are

We are a group of creative individuals that work together to form the Art Technicians. Our role is to keep the school displays beautifully organised and ensure all of our work is presented to an exceptionally high standard.

What We Do

We work with Mrs Thornton to learn about different artists and aspects of presentation. We discuss how to exhibit art work effectively and create engaging displays. During our weekly sessions, we practise a number of technical skills, such as calligraphy and mounting pictures. We also want to make sure our school environment remains spectacular and regularly monitor the condition of our corridor displays.
