Our Global Kitchen is awash with colour with an international art gallery, showcasing the work of talented artists from across the world.
Inspired by a coronavirus-themed painting on social media by UK artist MJ Hiblen, Houseparent Sheila Price set out to create a vast display in recognition of the current, extraordinary times and to complement the Rainbows for NHS Nightingale campaign display.
Adorning the twenty three windows in the Global Kitchen are 56 masterpieces from 34 different artists across 21 countries, including locations as far reaching as China, Kuwait, Canada and India. One artist, Ali Imperiale from the UK, contributed a piece of work that has been painted especially for the school.
There is also a dedicated section to Sir Captain Tom Moore, following an influx of artwork inspired by the iconic veteran.

Sheila comments, “The kindness and generosity of the international arts community in helping us to create this spectacular display has been overwhelming.”
“This display is important to us as not only will it complement the children’s colourful display, but it will serve as a reminder of an unprecedented time in our history and showcase the talent and artistic interpretations of this dreadful virus, by ordinary members of our global community. Also, our Global Kitchen and garden will be awash with colour as the artworks are displayed back to back on the windows to create a view from outside and in.”
