An Experiment in Total Environment

An Experiment in Total Environment

Toby Paterson, a famous international artist, has been working with students at the Academy for past two years in a project which explores the urban landscape of East Durham.

The project is designed to link to a range of National Curriculum subjects at Key Stages 2 and 3, including art and design, citizenship, geography and history.

The students have took part in a number of different activities which have looked closely at the work of Toby Paterson and Victor Passmore and encouraged students to creatively explore their surroundings and form opinions about it.

Some of the lucky students involved in the project had their work exhibited at the DLI museum in Durham.
