The Glover Art Studio is open and staffed five evenings a week from 4pm to 8.15pm, enabling pupils to work their art prep or homework and, most importantly for those pupils aiming for high grades, to extend and develop their coursework.
Once a week there is an evening life drawing class for sixth form pupils. This is an excellent opportunity to improve observational skills, add to coursework and build portfolios for art college applications.
There is a trip once a year for the sixth form to either the London galleries or more local galleries such as the Hepworth Gallery. There is also a Year 10 trip to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park where they spend the day drawing.
We have many pupils who continue on to art college courses, ranging from graphics, illustration, architecture, photography, jewellery, fashion, television, to name a few. Often these former pupils return to Giggleswick to give talks about their courses and careers.
