Taunton Academy Art summer camp

From Monday 9th to Friday 13th August a small group of students are coming together to think about their journeys to and from school as well as their impressions of school itself.
These pupils will be made up of a few students already attending the school and pupils who will be attending the new school in September. The idea is to introduce them to their new surroundings and get to know some people already there, as well as thinking about their own potential impact in the school. Of course all of this will happen through creative techniques will be drawing, painting, printing, model making and making our own sketchbooks.
The project will be led by professional artist Julie Roberts ( and assisted by Alice Jones ( recent graduate. This is all co-ordinated by Somerset Art Works and funded by the 'give it a go' programme via Somerset County Council.
