Many of you are probably already aware that Pinterest, www.pinterest.com, is a fun website that enables you to create and share a visual, digital collection of ideas for different projects and interests online. The site allows people to collect ideas on ‘boards’ by ‘pinning’ anything of interest they might find on the web, or re-pinning something another Pinterest user has already posted.

The HOHS art department have created boards on Pinterest and already found them to be a great help for exam groups in Years 10 to 13 – especially for those students searching for inspiration from other artists or looking to research exam topics. Our pupils are also benefiting from the recently donated ipads (thanks to the Parents’ Association) that are proving to be a very handy and convenient way of accessing the internet when working in the art department.
