Summer is an exciting time at Bell St Albans. As students from around the world converge on our campus, the air buzzes with anticipation for the season ahead. Within this lively atmosphere, the Bell Art & Design Academy offers a unique journey, allowing students to dive into a world of creativity and create their own masterpiece! We thought we’d take a closer look at the Academy and what the artists of tomorrow are getting up to, with the help of Art Teacher Julia.

The Art & Design Academy at Bell St Albans invites students who are passionate and curious about art and crafts to immerse themselves in an atmosphere of creativity and inspiration. Each student embarks on a creative journey, encouraged by our supportive instructors and inspired by our school’s beautiful setting. Whether it’s painting with captivating watercolours or sculpting with clay, our academy provides a wide range of artistic opportunities. We believe everyone has a special vision for their art, and our aim is to help them bring it to life.

Our art course is designed with this spirit in mind. We encourage students to develop their own creative vision by experimenting with different techniques and materials. One day they might be painting with watercolours, acrylics, or oil pastels, and the next they might be crafting beautiful pieces from paper, clay, or mosaics. There’s something incredibly therapeutic about creating art, and we strive to provide a supportive and inspiring setting for them to thrive.

Students also draw inspiration from the stunning nature surrounding our school grounds and find unique ways to express themselves. Whether they’re crafting bookmarks or images from individually picked and dried flowers and leaves, or painting stones and pebbles collected from the premises and during study tours, each piece is a reflection of their connection to nature and an expression of their artistic vision in this nurturing environment.
