Calderdale College Art and Design students start exciting new project

Calderdale College’s Art and Design students launch new project called “Home Pride” which celebrates the local area through art.

Students will be working collaboratively with Calderdale Libraries and Hargreaves Foundry to produce a number of art pieces, all of which promote Calderdale and West Yorkshire.

These works of art will be showcased at Halifax Library in November. From these, a series of works will be selected to be transformed into large murals to be put into permanent display on the gates of Hargreaves Foundry.

Hargreaves Foundry work closely with sculptor Anthony Gormley and are currently restoring the roof and gutters of The Palace of Westminster.

Throughout the project, students are working with the community to learn more about their hometown, and their potential future careers.

Inspirational speakers, masterclasses, tours and research  have been funded through Go Higher West Yorkshire and will form the basis of the project.

The students will work closely with the arts charity ACDC at Dean Clough, and local artists such as Hilly Fletcher, who previously graduated from the University Centre at Calderdale College.

We look forward to bringing you more pictures from this exciting project.
