'The Culture Wall'
Lea Manor High School will be launching ‘The Culture Wall’, a group artwork created by students in different schools across Luton as well as local artists. The piece celebrates diversity and the global community in Luton schools and throughout our town. The aim of the project is to promote positive values, love and tolerance.
This ongoing project was awarded a Community Grant from ‘Love Luton’ and generous funding and support from national construction company, Keepmoat. The work will be revealed by the Mayor of Luton at 3.30pm on Thursday 29th September at Lea Manor High school. It features a series of artworks based on Art and places from around the world as well as paintings of beautiful and interesting parts of Luton.
The pieces will adorn the hoarding that surrounds the area of Marsh Farm, currently under redevelopment. If you are local to the area and would like to be involved, please contact us through the contact form here

'What will you be?' competition for Year 5 students across Luton
Every year Lea Manor High school organises a competition for local primary schools. Year 5 students draw a picture of what they imagine themselves doing when they grow up. Winners are chosen and the winning school receives a day of art, working with our artist in residence Kirsten Jones.
Here are some of the entries:
The whole of year 5 then create a final piece inspired by Luton and its history. Every student gets to keep their original canvas and the group work is professionally printed onto perspex for hanging within the school. Below are the pieces created during 2014 when there were joint winners.
