"I remember my days at school vividly and with great affection. Bolton School has a great tradition in the liberal arts. I've always acted for the love of it and this first love was inspired at Hopefield, the school theatre."

Sir Ian McKellen - Actor and Old Boy

Boys put on Landscape Art Exhibition

Thursday, 26 January 2012

48 Year 6 boys at Bolton School put on their own art exhibition in the Arts and Conference Centre at Bolton School, and the same work is set to go on display at the Marketplace shopping centre in Bolton.

The exhibition for parents and friends of Bolton School, was organised by the boys themselves, and features acrylic landscape paintings which are done as part of the Year 6 art curriculum. The boys chose an image to paint and were taught the techniques by Art, Design & Technology Coordinator, Mr Tim Dickinson. The paintings make a colourful display with scenes ranging from beaches, countryside, the sea, mountains and waterfalls.

In February the work will be exhibited in the Upper Hall of the shopping centre. As a result of their successful two week exhibition last year, they will be able to exhibit for a month this year.
