This summer, Ashbourne travelled to Hanoi, Vietnam, to host an inspiring five-day Art workshop for aspiring Art students, between the ages of 14 and 19. The workshop was part of the college’s outreach programme to find and support gifted students.
Ashbourne’s Head of Art, and a successful London artist, Lawrence Quigley, led the workshop and gave students the change to try out new and different techniques and art activities. During the week Lawrence incorporated some elements of theory to inspire the practical activities which included external trips to Ninh Bình and Halong Bay to gather inspiration and materials for their work back at the studio.
Lawrence has a Masters in Fine Art from the distinguished Royal Academy of Art, London and has exhibited with a number of leading contemporary London galleries. He also has artwork in several private and public collections both in the UK and abroad. For the past 10 years Lawrence has successfully led our Art Department, playing an important role in our strong A level results and regularly placing students at top Art London Universities.
Ashbourne College is dedicated to helping students achieve their personal, academic and creative potential. This includes offering scholarships for talented students to study with us in London.
