Welcome to Islington Arts & Media School

John Jones Prestigious Award

John Jones is a global centre of excellence in the preservation and presentation of fine art. The prestigious company has developed and sponsored The John Jones Art Prize at IAMS. A panel of experts chose eight winners from over 60 Islington Arts and Media School student entries, with the winners being invited to John Jones Gallery to take part in a series of workshops lead by professionals, photographing their artwork, printing the work onto large-scale canvases and stretching them onto frames.

The winning pieces are exhibited in our new IAMS gallery. On Wednesday 2nd April a team from John Jones visited the exhibition, talked to the winning students and presented them with their certificates in a really lovely celebration of this new partnership between IAMS and John Jones.

“We are excited to be working with Islington Arts and Media School to teach students about specialist career pathways in the Fine Arts & Exhibitions industry: professional photography, restoration, precious metal gilding, bespoke carpentry, joining and framing.” Katie Jones, John Jones Director

Huge congratulations to our winners; Hamzat Ojubanire, Tonino O’Leary, Brigita Naguleviciute, Ksanet Emanuel, Alex Lac, Dorcas Bokete, Nimo Ismail and Isobella Finotti.

Islington Arts and Media has announced that it has officially become an Education Partner of award-winning education technology charity, Apps for Good.

Aiming to build the next generation of problem solvers and digital makers, Apps for Good is partnering with educators in schools and learning centres across the country to deliver a free course to young people aged 10-18 years. The course equips students to research, develop and make digital products and successfully takes them to market. Apps for Good provides the course content, training and connections to its Tech ‘Expert’ volunteers, and then lets teachers do what they are best at: inspiring and guiding young people.
