Art Department Life Model

September 2021 - Minimum 2 hours per week (term time September to March)

The nationally recognised Art Department follows a traditional Fine Art curriculum that embraces modern technology, without losing sight of the essential skills and disciplines that create confidence and build success. 

This dynamic sector leading department concentrates on nurturing the skills of drawing in all its guises, as an integral response to the development of an idea from concept to realisation of intentions. Painting, sculpture, printmaking and photography are the building blocks for a strong foundation in which to explore and develop a personal response to the visual world. Critical-study also plays a huge part in understanding the cultural heritage and contextual tradition of the pupils' work. It is our role to inspire, challenge and support every girl.  

We are seeking to appoint a professional, dependable person who is flexible and accommodating. The successful candidate will be required to model in the Art Department for a two hour session each week, term time for the Autumn and Spring terms (September – March). Additional sessions may be required depending on student demand. The position would suit a committed and personable individual who would be keen to support the artistic aspirations of our students, being sympathetic to the boarding school context.
