Joseph Venning - Tour of Britain Project 2019
We are very fortunate to have been one of three schools chosen on the Wirral to have a workshop with the local artist, Joseph Venning. Wirral based, Joseph Venning is a contemporary painter who specialises in large scale, wall mural commissions.  Joe lives and works in Eastham. Joseph began his career in the prestigious Chelsea College of Art in London. His largest piece to date, unveiled by the Lord Major of Liverpool, is a giant skyline of the city, measuring over 50 feet long.  His work has been bought by members of parliament, hung in the restaurants of Michelin star celebrity chefs, blessed by bishops, shipped to private collections throughout the world and highly praised by 8 year olds on their way to the classroom.
During this workshop, our Year 6 pupils will have an opportunity to create wonderful artwork which will be combined together to make the potentially largest drawing for the Tour of Britain. This tour is part of the Wirral Council's Culture & Visitor Economy Team who are working with Ovo Energy Tour of Britain.
Look out on our Twitter and our website for our artwork and photographs of our workshop.
