What you see pictured is just some of the outcomes created by our very talented Year 7 students. Waingels College has been working in association with Woodley Library for the past 6 weeks to deliver a series of practical workshops that have taken place after school in our artists studio. These workshops have been run by artists from Jelly, Reading’s biggest Arts organisation.

By taking part in the Making Connections project our students have been given the chance to achieve their Arts Award at the Discover Level. To achieve the Discover award, students ‘discover’ the Arts around them, find out about artists and their work and share their experiences with others, gaining a certificate at the end. This award provides a great introduction to the Arts and to other Arts Award levels.

 The artwork created by the students during the project will be exhibited in The Woodley Library as part of the Library Festival 2016 program. The Students and their families will be invited to view the exhibition and receive their awards, so that they can celebrate their achievements.

We would like to personally thank Jelly for all their efforts and coming in to our department to teach the students their passion in helping them gain their Art Award.
