14th December, 2017
Over the festive season our Director of Art & Design, Jason Cordingley, will be exhibiting some paintings in Gullane Art Gallery’s Christmas Show (open from Saturday 9th December). Mr Cordingley also has a number of paintings currently about to go on show in Edinburgh, and Glasgow, at the Castle Fine Art galleries. The impressionistic inspired paintings capture some of the most iconic scenes of each city and focus on the ever-changing quality of light and atmosphere that these unique locations provide. Mr Cordingley will contribute to Merchiston’s nominated charity, Place2Be, should any member of the Merchiston community purchase a painting.
Merchiston’s Art & Design Department enjoys an excellent reputation for both its public examination results and the highly visible way in which it exhibits pupils’ work around the School. The Department is committed to offering a stimulating environment for a wide range of art and design practices, in the belief that creativity is a vital part of a full education.
