Portrait Artist visit

Posted on: Friday 25th April 2014

The Art Department were delighted to welcome Nick Lord, winner of the Sky Arts Portrait Artist of the Year 2013. He kindly agreed to visit Stanwell to run a creative art workshop for Y12 and 13 Art students. He conducted a fascinating pigment mixing session and showed his varied portraiture techniques. The students were able to discuss their own work with Nick and ask for personal advice on the content of their exam research. Everyone was keen to hear about his experiences with the personalities he has been commissioned to paint such as; Hilary Mantel, Sophie Dahl, Gavin Henson and Chris Hoy. It was a wonderful visit for the 6th form and a most positive learning experience!
