The Painting's on the Wall…

Redland Green School's Year 13 Applied Art students have recently been involved in an interesting public arts project. As part of their Applied Art and Design Course they have created a number of exciting and vibrant murals for the walls of the Clifton Down Railway Station.

The art works were created to promote sustainability through public transport and provide a strong visual link for commuters between the station and Bristol Zoo. Take a look at the photo gallery below to see the art work. Arranged through Severnside Community Rail Partnership and First Great Western, the project was funded by Community Rail Development Fund and Bristol City Council.

As part of the A-level Applied Art and Design course students learn how professional artists, craftspeople and designers work in relation to a real-life brief.

Students are encouraged to experiment with different media and techniques, such as photography, textiles and graphic design to investigate the working methods of professionals.

This course is excellent preparation for a career in the art and design sector and for further study on an art foundation course or a degree course in a related field.
