Businesses are being offered the opportunity to adorn their walls with some high quality original works of art whilst supporting the next generation of local talent.
Wilmslow High School has launched an art loan scheme offering businesses the opportunity to hire students work for as little as £5 per calendar month. Any money raised through the scheme will be used to part subsidise artists' workshops within school and art department educational visits, thus ensuring that the younger students benefit from the legacy of their peers.
Adam Hayley, Teacher of Art, explained "This year, our sixth form art students have created a collective body of work of an extremely high standard and sophisticated nature. We passionately feel that this should be shared with the wider Wilmslow community and are now in a position to offer local businesses the opportunity to showcase some of our students' artwork.
"The pieces we are able to offer you, demonstrate a high level of technical skill and are sure to brighten up any environment."
They are available in A2 (594mm x 420mm) sized prints and are professionally mounted inside a contemporary black box frame (500mm x 700mm). Each image is printed to gallery standard and is technically rated at 'fine art' or 'photo quality'. The large format prints are UV stable and fade resistant for over 75 years.
Businesses will be provided with access to a range of different artistic packages and each year twenty new images will be available from which to choose.
Speaking about how the school will use any money raised, Mr Hayley said "The activities that we organise will assist in raising student attainment, help to bridge the skills gap between industry and education, and provide memories to last a life time. We hope that you will share our vision in order to support the next generation of local talent."
