News from Sunningwell School of Art

At the Art School here in Sunningwell we have had to say goodbye to Anna Lever, who after 25 years as director of the school has retired. We wish Anna great success and joy as she can now spend more time doing the things she loves and developing her own potting career.

We were also sorry to see Chris Taylor retire recently after a very long term administrating in the office.In order to ensure continuity at the art school, and to be able to continue the great legacy that Anna leaves, we have created two new posts, I am delighted that Allyson Austin will take on the role of Director of Artistic Studies and I will now be the Director of Administration.

Mike Woodward is stepping in, at least on a short term freelance basis to cover the administration aspects that Chris was responsible for and will take a close look at how our IT administration systems can be improved and also to lend a hand on the marketing front!

Between Allyson, myself, Beth and Mike and all the super tutors here at the art school we aim to ensure we will continue developing and expanding the range of visual art courses and to a high standard whilst maintaining the supportive culture that Anna has developed over the years.We look forward to welcoming you back to the Art School soon.

All the best for now and look forward to seeing you all very soon.

Best wishes

Vanessa Woodward
