HOME­COM­ING

Oldham Advertiser - - #OLDHAMLIVE -

CEL­E­BRATED in­ter­na­tional artist Brian Clarke re­turned to his home­town to open a new build­ing named after him.

The Blue Coat School wel­comed the artist re­spon­si­ble for some of the most en­dur­ing and rad­i­cal stained glass win­dows of the last 30 years.

They cre­ated a pa­per col­lage in the style of Clarke’s stain glass win­dows and in­spired by the sub­jects that will be taught in the new build­ing.

Head of art Natalie Clarke said “The story of a boy from Old­ham and his jour­ney to work­ing as one of the world’s lead­ing stained glass artists has ex­cited and in­flu­enced pupils of all ages to look at art and de­sign as a se­ri­ous ca­reer path.”
