St Andrew's Academy had been approached by the BBC to to be involved in an exciting new telelvision programme called Ricky Wilson's Art Jam which will be aired on CBBC late 2020 or early 2021. In each episode Ricky meets a celebrity friend and inspires and introduces them to a new art. Our class was given the celebrity name Ade Adepitan as inspiration to create our own pieces of art work to be shown to him.
Ade Adepitan MBE is a British television presenter and wheelchair basketball player. He uses a wheelchair as a result of contracting polio as a child which led to the loss of use of his left leg. Ade was born in Nigeria and moved to London when he was 3 years old.
As a result of this, Bute class decided that they would make some African inspired art for Ade as a reminder of his heritage. We hope you like it Ade!
