Students of the Royal Grammar School, Newcastle and their inspirational Artist/Teacher Christine Egan-Fowler kindly invited Jane and Lily to their end of term Christmas Art Party last Friday, to show her the exceptional Biro art they have been making! Following a visit to Jane's exhibition at the Gosforth Civic Theatre in August 2017, RGS students have spent this term studying her artwork and inspirations. Jane was honoured to spend time meeting students and look at the extraordinarily beautiful Biro art both students and their teacher produced.
Many students researched endangered species and drew animal portraits in Biro, while others chose to make abstract pieces experimenting with Biro and other mediums including wax, ink in ice-cubes and drawing on scrunched paper. Jane was thrilled to see the extremely high standard of the work created and the dedication of both students and their teachers. A huge thank you to the Royal Grammar School, students and Christine Egan-Fowler for creating an extremely moving and inspirational experience and for the beautiful collage frames they presented Jane with. Paying homage to the students outstanding spectrum of work, here is a celebratory gallery of photos she took during her visit:
