Eight of Woodroffe’s most able creative Sixth Form students attended the Bridport Art Centre’s and the Lyrical Theatres Creative Careers Day.

As part of the day the students attended a lecture on the Creative Industries and Creative Career Pathways by speaker Rosie Russell, Editor of DepARTure Times (Dorset’s Art Education Partnership) and a session by Bridport Art Centre Programme Manager, Margie Barbour on Programming Arts Events.

For the remainder of the day the group split into two halves and two separate workshops. The first half worked with The Stuff and Nonsense Theatre Company where they learnt about and took part in practical sessions on puppet making, animation and film production. The second half joined a team from the University of Bournemouth in a session based on advice and guidance for setting up, organising and running an Arts Festival. The two group then changed places and experienced the other workshop before returning home at the end of a very productive and informative day.

Mrs Wood, Director of Art, said “This was a really good experience for the students and I am delighted that they all enjoyed the sessions Bridport Art Centre and the Lyrical Theatre put on. It was a good insight for them into Art as a career.”
