Art for Addaction
Art A-Level students from Cardinal Newman College have been involved with a great initiative with the charity Addaction.
Addaction is one of the UK’s leading drug, alcohol and mental health charities, supporting the most at risk and vulnerable people.
The charity was looking for some artwork to display in their new building, so contacted Cardinal Newman to see if our students would like to help. Over the summer term our then year 12s (now year 13) dedicated some class time to researching and creating artwork that best reflected the term ‘community’ to them.
The students were encouraged to interpret the theme of ‘community’ however they felt appropriate and were also asked to consider what those who require Addaction’s support may have experienced.
All Year 12 Fine Art A-Level students were involved, and the winning three pieces were selected by Addaction’s Young Ambassadors, who chose the pieces that they most wanted to see framed and displayed on the walls of their buildings.
Congratulations to Ben Wilson (artwork pictured right), Alyssa Johnson and Rachel Orton who will all now have their work displayed at Addaction’s new building.
