Art At Cheltenham College
Cheltenham College Art Department is housed in a unique space that is made up of five large practical areas: The Main Studio, where the majority of Third Form and GCSE students are taught, The Yellow Studio, which is an all purpose teaching space and a very large Upper College Studio. Alongside this we have a well equipped Ceramics / 3D area containing two kilns and 4 electric potter’s wheels and a separate Printmaking / Resources Studio. The Rotunda; Collaborative Learning Centre, is a beautiful circular library extremely well stocked with art reference books both historical and contemporary. We are very proud of our gallery called The White Gallery which provides an interactive exhibition space for College, the local community and beyond. Our department surrounds the stunning Thirlestaine Long Gallery, known as the TLG, which is an enviable space for exhibitions, theatrical and musical performance, teaching and lectures.
Art at Cheltenham College is a lively, diverse, exciting & stimulating place for all. The Art department encourages work to be produced in a vast range of media, with IT provision that includes six Apple Macs, an A3 laser colour printer, a large flatscreen TV in The White Gallery and full networking facilities.
The White Gallery
The White Gallery is an exhibition area and interactive space created by Juliet Wallace-Mason, the Head of Department. It is a multi-functional space, constantly changing, but the underlying theme of many of the exhibitions is to encourage our students to create work inspired by the artists that exhibit here, so that they have the chance to exhibit their responses along-side the professionals. Visitors are always most welcome to pop in to our Open Evening events, where they can meet the artists and wonder around our exhibitions. The White Gallery is open all week from Monday - Saturday from 7.30am to 8.00pm by appointment.
