ITP Awards

Year 10 (now 11) Applied art students had worked on illustrating a booklet for a local charity, the ITP Support Association. Not only did they have to learn illustration skills and book layouts in addition they had to work with a client, sell their ideas and meet deadlines.

The Chief Executive of the charity, Shirley Watson, acted as the client for the project and came in to view the finished projects. She was very impressed by the overall standard of the work produced and selected two students’ illustrations to be used for the final booklets.

The project was scheduled to be completed in conjunction with the opening of the charity's new headquarters in Bolnhurst on Saturday. This event was exceptionally well attended with local and international visitors all of whom expressed interest in the project.

Darcey Pryor and Joelleen Holland both had their work selected and this Saturday received a certificate of thanks and a gift voucher presented by the actor Neil Dudgeon (from Midsomer Murders) - he was also very impressed by the standard of the girls' work!
