Teaching artist residency for Art and Design PGCE trainees

Well done to our (Secondary) Art and Design PGCE trainees George Hinchliffe and Ani Grimes, who were selected by world-leading opera house Glyndebourne to take part in the Visual Artist teacher residency during the summer. 

The residency, which launched in 2019, is aimed to support those who are in the first 5-15 years of their professional career, giving artists the opportunity to develop their skills, build on their creative practice, exhibit new work and gain a behind-the-scenes insight into our work. 

The purpose of this Residency is to produce new work in response to the buildings, history, stories, music, stagecraft or productions at Glyndebourne, to make interdisciplinary connections between art and music and inspire visitors with their artwork.

Course leader, Sally Johnson commented “this was another amazing residency experience allowing two selected PGCE trainees the opportunity to produce their own artwork inspired and in response to Glyndebourne Opera and the 2021 summer festival. The work is joyous and captures the unique experience of Glyndebourne Opera opening up again to audiences over the summer festival. This has given George and Ani the chance to develop their own practice and extend their subject knowledge which they will take into their new roles of teachers of Art and design in Oxfordshire and West Sussex”.
