It has provided such a fantastic experience and

opportunity for our students". Hamish Young, Head of Art

"May I take this opportunity to thank you for including CCP's school in this project... Our students encounter many difficulties in life as they progress along their educational and social journey, and this project enabled the students to express themselves freely without fear of failure... Art is a vehicle that transcends limitations and helps a young person to realise their full potential". Chris Allen, School Leader

"I really enjoyed the art project and found it interesting! It was brilliant working with an artist and I loved being able to experience a wide range of mediums, some I would not thought of using before! I felt able to use my imagination and was pleased with the final product. In the future I want to be an art teacher and this definitely made my mind up! Thank you for an amazing few days!"
