Students at Coppice unveil new artwork

Students at Coppice Performing Arts School in Ashmore Park recently unveiled stunning 2D images they have created in collaboration with artist-in-residence and photographer Ming De Nasty.

The pieces based on the theme of movement and light celebrate the school’s status as a performing arts centre and will be permanently exhibited around the school.

As well as helping children with their coursework, the project provided them with the opportunity to work closely with a professional artist and students were involved in the whole process from taking pictures, through to curating an exhibition of their work.

The initiative is part of Project Dandelion, Wolverhampton’s Building Schools for the Future (BSF) Public Art programme.

Janice Fletcher, Head teacher at Coppice, said: “At Coppice Performing Arts School we aim to provide learning and teaching that matches individual needs, challenges and inspires minds and ensures that every young person aspires to achieve their personal best.

“The public art project has supported this vision providing talented young artists with the unique opportunity to work alongside professional artists to create art for the students and community of the future Coppice school.”

Looking at the photographs are: Head teacher Janice Fletcher with artist Ming De Nasty and photographers Scott Brown, Danny Sleeuwenhoek, Hollie Clark, Heather Causer, and Sian Hathaway-Hill.
