The John Fisher School Art Exhibition showcases some of the work produced by our students in Years 9 to 13. The work on display varies in theme and style, with various messages and meanings demonstrated in the piece.
The work is being displayed in the Toyota Croydon showroom as John Fisher and Jemca continue to work together in community minded projects and initiatives which enhance the student’s experience of education and link with external organisations.
An Old Fisher boy who is now a professional- had been commissioned by the school to draw a piece showcasing the school in action.
" Ricardo Insua-Cao's, S.Lm, B.A (Hons), work is surprisingly diverse, from tight natural history illustration and miniature watercolours on ivorine (an unusual type of plastic made from formaldehyde and casein protein extracted from skimmed milk) to very large abstracts in oils, from corporate graphic design to free design for musicians.
During his A-Level years, Ricardo was taught miniature painting initially by Elizabeth Davis Wood M.B.E and then Michael Bartlett, then Vice President of the Royal Miniature Society. After his A-levels, Ricardo went to Central Saint Martin’s School of Art and Design, receiving a Diploma in Art and Design. This led to three years in Cornwall where studied for a B.A. (Hons) in Illustration at Falmouth College of Art, where he gained a 1st Class Degree.
Alongside his professional practice Ricardo has often given practical sessions in schools and will be setting up workshops soon in the beautiful village of Geddington."
The Art Exhibition will be displayed from the 18th May 2017 till the 21st May 2017.
We hope you can come down and view some of the students work.
