Spring Inspiration for Glenalmond Art

The theme for this year's Glenalmond Big Draw challenge was "Springwatch". With the rebirth of nature, spring is often a huge source of inspiration for artists and so, as a school community, we got together to show what spring means to us. Our Art Department was very pleased with the number of entries this year and also with the innovative interpretations of the theme. Well done to all who entered - you have put us all in the spirit of spring and fresh starts!

Glenalmond Pupils Express Themselves Brilliantly In Lockdown

The Importance of Art to Young People

"We don’t just teach students to be artists, we teach them to be inquisitive, to be powerful observers of life and with their ideas, to act and to create." Something which is often observed about the Artwork at Glenalmond is how different the work is compared to other schools, how the work is truly personal and shows the passions of each student. Our Head of Art, Keir Downey, explains why he thrives on this and highlights why Art as a subject remains highly relevant to young people in modern society.
