Since starting an online portfolio Monks’ Dyke Tennyson College Art Department has received an amazing one million hits!
Over the past two years the department has photographed and catalogued artwork to share with not only students at the college but also people worldwide.
One 6th Form student at MDTC said: “It’s a great way to share and celebrate the work that we make. I love reading comments that people leave about my own and my friends’ work.”
Head of Department Mrs Beaumont said: “It’s a great resource to use within the classroom, allowing students to see past examples within their own college and explore Art created by others worldwide.”
So what does the future hold for the department resource? The Art Department staff hope that the idea could be rolled out to not only other departments within the college but locally and nationally too, so that other schools can share and comment on the work that their students produce.
