Room 13 The Mill
Room 13 at The Mill is part of an exciting international network of art studios that are set up in schools and run by a committee of students.
Each Room 13 studio facilitates the work of young artists alongside a professional adult Artist in Residence, providing an exchange of ideas, skills and experience across the ages. In Room 13, students are encouraged to take the lead, be creative, and to think for themselves. This very simple idea has been embraced by people all over the world, giving rise to a movement that places art and creativity at the heart of learning.
The Artists in Residence at The Mill is Janey Moffatt. She is a multi media artist who enjoys working with film and video, printmaking and sculpture.
Recently students have been learning about the work of Sonia Delaunay and have created a wonderful display in the school that has been inspired by her work. This includes screen printing, concertina books and orphism style geometric art.
Room 13 is open for all children as long as they keep their work up to date.
Our Room 13 representatives and committee members are:
Deputy Chair: Sainabou
Secretaries: Cira, Alesha
Personal relations: Marnie, Ella
Stock Monitor: Angel, Poppy,
Caretakers: Oliver, Evie, Eden
