Our students have been inspired by the works of Joan Miro and Niki De Saint Phalle. They have studied these artists through work with paint and ceramic and have taken inspiration from the interests of the artists named. These are architectural design, time travel, wildlife, fashion, and sculpture. These ideas have allowed them to design the following and the dogs have been produced with mix media, colour, and textural outcomings. Colours, shapes, themes, and techniques from these artists have helped to inform, inspire and create our School's Snowdog. 

Access to Ossie Dog:

Please note; this Snowdog can only be accessed during the opening times of Jesmond Dene Visitors Centre. The opening times are as follows: 10am-4pm Weekdays, 10am-3:30pm Weekends.
