Year 12 and 13 Art and Photography students were inspired this week by the artist Annabel Tilley who ran a sketchbook workshop with them on Thursday. Our students relished the opportunity to learn new drawing and mark making techniques which culminated in their own hand sewn sketchbook. Annabel Tilley has exhibited at the Tate Modern and spoke with the students about her book, ‘What they do not tell you in Art School’ giving valuable insight to any students who wish to go to Art School.
Year 7 took part in a mini architect project this term! They investigated the work of artist Barbara Gilhooly and created these lovely bright buildings that we exhibited in class over the wall ( a huge artwork!) Well done year 7 🙂
Our year 8 students investigated the work of contemporary artist Kehinde Wiley and individually created these brightly coloured patterned circles in response to his work. The work was then exhibited on stage during the Black History Month Celebration concert, where over 100 of them could be seen! A very impressive sight! Well done year 8!
Every week we aim to post a variety of artwork that is happening across the key stages. We hope you enjoy viewing the art work as much as we enjoy teaching it! Come and see what the students are up to and keep up to date with gallery news, exhibitions and art events!
