Unique Art Car collaboration project with Porsche Sheffield

In a unique collaboration with Porsche Sheffield, our Year 11 and Year 13 Art students have designed and created an iconic Porsche Art Car. 

In a project that has taken place over the last six months, students worked to a brief set by the team at Porsche to create themes and mood boards in groups before pulling their ideas together to create a unique design that has been wrapped on a Porsche Taycan electric car. 

Year 11 and Year 13 students explored themes of emancipation, women’s rights and ‘reclaiming the feminine narrative’ to inspire their collaborative design during this partnership project, which also aimed to introduce students to the huge range of career opportunities open to women within the automotive industry.

The car was unveiled at the Porsche Sheffield showroom in March 2022 and guests heard from Year 13 Art prefect Maria, who outlined the feminist themes captured within the imagery as well as viewing an exhibition of Year 12 portraiture work.

Porsche UK CEO, Sarah Simpson, also spoke to guests about her own experiences in the automotive industry and the many avenues open to school leavers and graduates looking for a challenging career within the field.  

Nina Gunson said, “The Art Car is stunning and we are delighted to have had the opportunity to be involved in an art tradition with such a long and varied history. This partnership project has given our students the opportunity to collaborate with an iconic brand and explore the power of art and design to convey meaning and challenge thinking, as well as find out more about the huge range of careers open to women in the automotive industry. Our students have worked incredibly hard to produce a beautiful and thought-provoking piece of art, which we look forward to seeing around the streets of Sheffield in the coming weeks.”

This partnership has been a wonderful opportunity for our students to work on a real life creative project and we look forward to further collaboration work with Porsche in the future.
