The art school at Christ’s Hospital has kept a tradition of ‘housing’ artists in residence to work alongside, and help the pupils. Every two years, the art department welcomes a new artist to hold the position; For the first time in the art school’s recent history, there have been three artists in residence, working concurrently over the last two-year period.
Mr Mead, Miss Phillips and Miss Catterall work fervently and secretly in their studios. The pupils rarely see their work, but when they do, they are truly intrigued by some of the processes and final products created. During the last week of the summer term, the annual artists in residence exhibition took place. As they go onto their different artistic and farming routes, they will be missed for their company and tireless support.
