Art Bus to visit Bedales

On Wednesday afternoon from 1.30pm, Bedales will be hosting the CAA Art Bus, a mobile work of art designed by Sir Peter Blake which is also a mobile art gallery. Sir Peter designed the bus in a pop art style, with the aim of creating a rock ‘n’ roll tour bus for art and artists which visits schools, communities, festivals, galleries and art events. Bedales students will be able to climb aboard to experience the art of some of the UK’s finest contemporary artists first hand by seeing their work in the bus gallery space. They will have an opportunity of a question and answer session with one of these artists live from their studio via the bus satellite links, and will learn about printmaking, as well as having the chance to design their own model Art Bus. Parents are also very welcome to attend.
