Thomas Schools Foundation Arts Club at Westbridge

Since Spring 2013 ACAVA has run an after school art club at Westbridge Primary School generously funded by Thomas’s Schools Foundation (TSF), an independent charity providing educational and extracurricular opportunities for children in the local communities of the four Thomas’s London Day Schools in Battersea, Clapham, Fulham and Kensington.

Run by a lead artist, supported by volunteer artists the club is open to a different year group each term, who are supported to experiment and explore new techniques and work together to create a collaborative work of art for display within the school.

Past groups have produced collage murals for a stairwell and a window hanging for the school hall. Projects tend to involve exploring the urban environment of the school’s surroundings and expressing pupils individual identities within the school.
