The last week of our first half term was Big Draw Week, and in true Archer Academy style we really threw ourselves into it.

Every Art and Design & Technology lesson was taken over by professional artists and designers from a huge range of different environments and industries, including Microsoft, the Saatchi Gallery and the Design Museum. They delivered workshops on logo design, Manga, abstract painting, design thinking, product disassembly and much much more.

We also put on art based activities every lunchtime, including a 5m long abstract painting installation which 30 students collaborated to create, and a 3D printing workshop during which students designed and printed their own architectural model town.

For the first time, the week was supported by local car hire and courier company Greater London Hire whose generosity allowed us invite some really prestigious guests and increase the number of activities we offered. We’re already looking forward to next year!
