Art students from Stantonbury School Sixth Form have painted a mural for our Stantonbury Health Centre.
The piece, which will form part of the young artists’ A-Level portfolios, was designed to inspire and raise spirits and it is already a hit among the Talking Therapies staff.
“I think it’s fantastic,” said Team Manager, Jake Thorpe. “We’re so grateful to the students of Stantonbury School for helping create a message of hope for people who use our services.”
Becky Gouverneur, the pupils’ art teacher who led the project, hopes that the piece can help bring the community closer together.
She said: “Working on a project like this for a client in a real-world setting has been invaluable to our students to experience how art could be pursued as a career option.
“The sense of pride we all share in having created something which will be appreciated by so many has been amazing and we have had so many lovely comments by visitors and staff while we have been working to keep us motivated.
“Thank you to Jake for reaching out and giving us the opportunity to show how our students here at Stantonbury can shine!”
On behalf of the Stantonbury Health Centre and CNWL as a Trust, we would like to thank the artists (named below) for all their hard work throughout the project.
Each student was presented with a certificate of thanks when the project was completed on 12 July, and a plaque now hangs next to the piece as a dedication to their efforts.
The mural was created by:
- Riyan Aden
- Jasmine Boiling
- Jessica Brooks
- Chloe Chesters
- Matthew Hazell-O'Mahoney
A special thanks also to the Art, Design and Technology team at Stantonbury School for giving up many hours to the project – particularly Alex Jevon.
