All students studying Art at Ruyton, and their teachers, are to be commended on the wonderful work displayed at the Muse Art and Design Exhibition last week. It was a privilege to hear from past student Ms Alice Kennedy (‘11), as she shared her enjoyment of studying Art at Ruyton and her impressive career. She emphasised the importance of creativity in all professions and as a means of enriching our lives. Alice concluded with her motivational words ‘to be able to create is to be able to inspire.’
