Through support from THF, students attending South and West Devon Academy were given the exciting opportunity to work with Devon-based stained glass artist, Anne Smyth,at the T.A.A.G. centre, Teignmouth.
Carolyn Ballard, Teacher and Arts Award Coordinator at the Academy said, ‘ We are very grateful that through the support of The Helen Foundation, Daisi , and T.A.A.G, our students have been able to learn a new art skill by working with a professional artist to create inspiring and beautiful stained glass hanging pieces. It is an experience they will never forget.’
Helen Foundation Chairman Roger Kirk, who attended the workshop said, “The young people worked with great concentration throughout the workshop. They showed impressive levels of creativity under Anne’s expert guidance to produce some really beautiful work. The glass hangings were later fired in Anne’s kiln producing a permanent legacy of an excellent arts day.”
