It is a requirement that all students have an A3 sketchbook for their GCSE work. The Art department would like to offer all Art students the chance to purchase a good quality artist sketchbook and a portfolio case, at cost price.
The A3 sketchbook - made by Pink Pig - holds 35 leaves of 150gsm cartridge paper with a smart black cover and a 2mm grey board bound on the long edge with white cartridge paper. It can be bought for £3.24.
You do have the option to purchase your own of course, but please make sure it is A3 and contains good quality cartridge paper.
The transparent portfolio is clip close with carrying handles and will fit an A3 sketchbook, making it easier to transport and protect loose work and sketchbooks. It can be bought with the sketchbook (but not separately) for an additional £1.40.
Payments should be made via our on-line system, ParentPay as cash & cheques are no longer taken within the Art department. The deadline for payment is 20th October 2016.
If your child is eligible for Pupil Premium funding, a sketchbook will be provided free of charge at the beginning of the Autumn term.
